Ahem... it's actually 'brake mean effective pressure', but I guess dyslexics can be forgiven. Especially smart ones like you.Viv wrote:Let me introduce you to "BMEP" or break mean efficiency pressure, this is the holy grail figure for diesels
It's a holy grail figure for all internal combustion engines, not just diesels. It is the one overwhelmingly meaningful figure of engine performance, which encompasses everything. You boost your BMEP and you can forget about everything else. The rest is chemistry, as my late father (a physicist) used to say.
Viv, you have given me a nice Christmas card with those diesels. Juicy stuff. Haven't pored over diesels for a long time now. Thank you.
BTW. How on earth (pun intended) did you end up in soil reclamation?
