Stroke, Swept Volume, Compression Ratio, Clearance Volume

 Stroke & Bore

An engine's bore is the diameter of each cylinder, while the stroke is the distance within the cylinder the piston travels


It is the point in which the piston of your engine is at its highest point on the compression stroke.


It is the lowest point that the piston reaches

Swept Volume (Vs)

Volume swept by the piston from TDC to BDC

Vs= Area x Length

Clearance Volume (Vc)

Clearance volume is a volume between the cylinder head and the piston top when the piston is at top dead center

Volume of the Cylinder (Va)

Va = Vs+Vc

Compression Ratio

compression ratio is defined as the ratio of total volume of the engine cylinder (ie..both clearance and stroke volume ) to the clearance volume
