What is a radial engine?

There were basically two types of aircraft engines, in-line and radial. In-line engines were like most car engines. You start with a solid block of metal and bore large holes in it for the pistons, one hole behind the other, all in a row. Normally these had to be water-cooled, adding an extra vulnerability to the airplane. A bullet through the radiator would soon cause all the coolant to leak out and soon the engine would seize up from overheating. Radial engines have the cylinders bolted on around the outside, like spokes on a wheel. They radiate from the middle, hence radial. Radial engines are roughly round, and wide when compared to an inline engine, but short, front to back. Because the cylinders are outside, all around the edge, not in the middle of a cylinder block, radial engines can be air-cooled. Think of the nose of a US P-47 - its blunt and wide because of its large radial engine housed there. The US P-51 had an in-line engine, and a pointy nose. The same with Germany's Bf 109 - pointy, inline, and the FW 190, blunt, wide, radial.

What parts are in the engine inWorld War 2 planes?

There were two types of airplane engines in WWII - radial, and in-line. Both had cylinders within which pistons traveled back and forth, powered by the exploding fuel. Radial engines were round, and very short front to back. The cylinders were bolted on all around the outside edge. These engines were air-cooled. Fighter planes with radial engines had a flat, blunt nose, like the US P-47 or the German FW 190. A radial engine could have a gun mounted to fire through the middle of the propeller hub. In-line engines were water cooled. That meant they needed a radiator just like a car.

Why do all World War 2 carrier planes have radial engines?

They didn't. All American carrier planes had radial engines but some Japanese and British aircraft had liquid-cooled engines, also planes built in Germany for their carrier which was never finished had liquid-cooled engines. Radial engines were used in most cases because they were more rugged than other engines, a pilot would only need to watch his oil pressure gauge whereas using a different engine he would also have to check his coolant, and a single bullet in a liquid-cooled engine could cause it to seize up in a short time.

How do you radial engine connected to turbo jet engine?

The fact that both are aircraft engines is the only connection.

How does the biplane create thrust?

Most biplanes had radial engines driving a propeller, this created thrust when it rotated.

What engine do biplanes use?

There are hundreds of different biplanes with many different engines. IN WW1 the 'rotary' engine was popular. After the war radial engines and inline and Vee engines began to gain popularity. There were many engine manufacturers.

What are the disadvantages and advantages of a jet engine over radial engines or piston engines used for aircraft's?

The advantages, you move over a lot more land in a lot less time. The disadvantages, Jet engines use a lot more fuel, and are a lot louder.

How does a radial engine differ from a normal engine?

The "normal" engine is also called a rotary engine. Both of these engines look very similar. Radial engines use a conventional crankshaft in a fixed engine block, unlike the rotary engine. +++ You've missed the fundamental point. A conventional engine has its cylinders in a straight line or lines. A radial engine's cylinders are arranged, as its name says, radially from the polygonal crankcase, like the spokes of a wheel.

What were planes powered by before jet engines?

Propeller driven piston internal combustion engines. Similar to the one in your car, except planes usually used either radial or rotary engines, both of which have the cylinders arranged in a circle and typically have a multiple of 9 cylinders.

Can you use normal oil where synthetic recommended?

Yes, but you do so at your own risk. If the manufacture recommends synthetic oil they have a reason for doing so. Turbo engines, or high performance engines benefit from the use of synthetic oil. My advice is to use synthetic if that is what the manufacture recommends.

What is Winchester 9422 ser f484746 date of manufacture?

What is the piston firing order for 4 cylinder engines?

Without knowing what engine manufacture and size you are asking about it is impossible to answer as there are 5 different firing orders for 4 cylinder engines.

What the address of Craftsman - petrol engine producer?

Craftsman does not produce any engines. All craftsman engines are produced by some other manufacture. You will have to know who the manufacture is which I realize you are looking for. The design and look of the engine will tell anyone knowledgable in small engines who made it. Depending on the age of the engine it can be a Briggs & Stratton, Tecumseh, Kohler, Honda, Subaru, Kawasaki, or a Chinese brand.
