Abstract: The internal combustion engines are also known as heat engines because of the utilization of heat energy of the fuel to convert it in to mechanical energy of the engine which finally runs the vehicle. Therefore, it is necessary to examine the generation and utilization of heat inside and outside the engine. For the above mentioned purpose, a variable compression ratio engine was used to perform experiment. The heat distribution of the used engine was investigated to recognize the heat loss areas from the engine. The experiments were performed by changing compression ratio from 15 to 21 and an optimum compression ratio was found. The experiments are further extended to find an optimum load value at standard compression ratio of the engine. The analysis was performed by using various factor of heat utilization such as heat supplied by fuel, heat equivalent to brake power, heat loss to exhaust gases, heat loss to engine cooling water and heat unaccounted. The proposed research will be useful to overcome the challenges during selection of compression ratio for design of an engine in industries.
