Introduction. Transformation of fuel energy heated by compressed air into the mechanical work of the engine is carried out as follows. Internal combustion engines (ICEs) have a combustion chamber with a typical design, which is formed by the bottom of the piston and the head of the cylinder with an integral volume. In the cylinder there is an accelerating process of combustion of a fuel-air mixture throughout the volume of the combustion chamber. Increasing the power of engines with such a combustion chamber is possible only through the use of fuel with a high accent number.

Attempts to maximize the compression ratio of the fuel-air mixture, which determines the engine power, causes increased detonation processes, since the homogeneity and uniformity of the pressure distribution of gas combustion are disturbed. As a result, in the combustion chamber there is a very rapid movement of the mass of gas in the form of shock waves of compression and expansion.

The classic design of an ICE combustion chamber is formed by the piston head and cylinder head. It has an integral volume, in which the accelerating process of combustion of a fuel-air mixture over the entire volume of the combustion chamber [1] occurs.

World practice shows that in order to improve diesel engines, special attention should be paid to their basic output. The analysis of these indicators indicates that the maximum allowable compression ratio of the fuel-air mixture depends not only on the anti-knocking properties of the fuel, but also on the configuration of the combustion chamber.

In [2], it is shown how it is possible to convert the energy of fuel

heated by compressed air into the mechanical work of the engine. In such an engine, the ring walls of the combustion chamber contain a cold and hot side. A large number of dilutions are made in the wall.

A large number of dilutions are made in the wall. These openings allow the air to penetrate from the cold side of the wall to the hot side. Such a technological method is provided by combustion and dilution of a mixture of fuel and air.

In [3] the internal combustion engine with the following design is presented. It consists of, at least, one cylinder with a piston located therein, which is kinematically connected to the crankshaft.

The cylinder contains a head with inlet and outlet valves installed in it. At the bottom of the piston is a combustion chamber, made in the form of a recess from the body of rotation, whose axis coincides with the axis of the cylinder or is located near it

The vortexes of charge in the form of endings with tangential channels are located around the combustion chamber on the bottom of the piston and adjoin to the recess on the cylinder head at the position of the piston at the upper dead point (UDP).

The valves are located on the grooves in the cylinder head, the depth of which corresponds to the depth of the recess of the cylinder head and the height of the end faces at the bottom of the piston.

The ignition source - the nozzle - is installed in the drain of the cylinder head, with the combustion chamber and the end faces on the bottom of the piston made of cast iron or steel with low thermal conductivity and inserted or fixed to the bottom of the piston made of aluminum alloy.

In the engine, described in [4], the combustion chamber is formed by an external plane surface of the piston bottom and a deepening of the head in the form of segments. Segments of spherical surfaces have centers that are located on the extension of the axis of the valves.

In the electrodes area of the spark plugs there is an additional segment of the spherical surface. With such constructive performance, the working process of the piston engine of internal combustion is determined by the shape of its combustion chamber

The purpose of this work is to increase the efficiency of the diesel engine.

Materials and methods. Between the cylinder-piston group and the working body (combustible mixture) there are three forms of interaction:

--mechanical, which is carried out by moving the surface of the working body by a cylinderpiston group;

--heat, which is carried out through the surface of the working body in the presence of a temperature difference between it and the cylinder-piston group;

--mass exchange, which occurs as a result of joining or removing from the working body of elements of mass through the outer surface of the engine (muffler).

The process of connecting the mass of fuel to the working body consists of the stages of pushing out the spent working body and spent fuel, as well as the addition of new portions of fuel to the working mixture.

At the suction stage, the fuel mass element dm falls to the volume of the working mixture. After that, the merging of two volumes and alignment of all the parameters of the working mixture elements that join it occurs.

Let the parameters of the working body to join the mass dm were as follows: pressure P, specific volume u, temperature T, mass m and specific internal energy u. After joining the mass, they changed to dp, dv, d[tau], dm and du. Then the volume occupied by the attached element in the volume of working mixture, we calculate according to the formula:

dv = ([upsilon] + d[upsilon])dm [approximately equal to] dm .

Work, which is spent on suction in the volume of the working mixture of the elementmass dm, will be determined by the formula:

dL = (p + dp)([upsilon] + d[upsilon])dm [approximtaely equal to] p[upsilon] dm.

Specific absorption work will be determined by the equation:

dl = dL/m = p[upsilon]dm/m = p[upsilon]d[c.sub.m],

where [c.sub.m]-the relative magnitude of the mass of the attached element.

The excess energy of an element of mass dm, which is attached to the working mixture, will be determined by the formula:

dU = ([i.sub.n] - [i.sub.0])dm,

where i-the enthalpy of an attached element;

[i.sub.0]-enthalpy of the working body.

When separating the mass d[m.sub.0] from the working body, the volume of the separated element will be determined by the formula:

d[V.sub.0] = ([upsilon] + d[upsilon])d[m.sub.0] [approximately equal to] [upsilon]d[m.sub.0].

Exhaust of heated air from the body volume of the piston occurs due to the energy of air in the volume of the thermodynamic body - the piston. Therefore, the work of pushing dL0 and negative work d[l.sub.0] will be calculated according to the formulas:

[mathematical expression not reproducible]

where c-relative value of the separated mass of air.

The energy at the time of air separation, which began to flow into the engine cylinder from the entire mass, is superfluous. The energy that is present in the working space is zero, since the element of separated air has an enthalpy that is equal to the enthalpy of the elements of the working body - the piston.

When connecting and separating the masses of the air there is a mechanical and thermal interaction between the air and the piston cavities. In this case, the work on the mechanical interaction of the working mixture and structural elements that limit the working cavity, is determined by the formula

dl = p[upsilon]d[c.sub.n] - p[upsilon]d[c.sub.0] = p[upsilon]dc,

where dc = d[c.sub.n] - d[c.sub.0] = d[m.sub.n]-d[m.sub.0]/m = dm/m.

The energy of the thermal interaction of the mass transfer between the working mixture and the constant detachable air mass dm is calculated as follows:

d[q.sub.n] = ([i.sub.n] - [i.sub.0])d[c.sub.n].

Equation of energy balance for unit of mass of air in the presence of heat transfer in the working cavity will have the form:

dU = dq + ([i.sub.n] - [i.sub.0])d[c.sub.n] + dl + p[upsilon]d[c.sub.n] - p[upsilon]d[c.sub.0]. (1)

The internal energy of the whole air-changing weight, which has fallen into the engine cylinder, is determined by the formula

U = um,

and the growth of this energy will be determined by the formula

dU = mdu x udm .

The change in the mass of air that enters the engine cylinder is determined by the formula

dm = d[m.sub.n] - d[m.sub.0].

Then formula (1) takes the form

dU = dQ + dL + [i.sub.n]d[m.sub.n] + [i.sub.0]d[m.sub.0].

We divide both parts of the equation into an infinitesimal amount of time and obtain the equation:

dU/d[tau] = dQ/d[tau] dL/d[tau] + [i.sub.n]d[m.sub.n]/d[tau] + [i.sub.0] d[m.sub.0]/d[tau], (2)

where dQ/d[tau]-the flow of heat through the entire surface of the air, which is limited by a cylinder, a piston and a head of the combustion chamber;

dL/d[tau]-power supplied by the environment (elements of the engine) to the air that has fallen into the engine cylinder;

dmn/d[tau] and d[m.sub.0]/d[tau]-mass flow into the cavity of the piston of air particles, which, respectively, are joined and disconnected from its volume;

[tau]-the infinitely small amount of time for which the particles (air) of the air are joined to (from) the total air volume.

The working processes in engines occur with a period corresponding to the time of one revolution of the crankshaft. Therefore, the analysis of engine working processes (with a modernized piston) is more convenient to carry out, depending on the angle of rotation [phi] of the crankshaft, the value of which can be expressed by the equation:

d[phi] = [omega]d[tau],

where [omega]- [phrase omitted]

When replacing in the equation of the variable t on 9 we obtain the "equation of the energy processes of a diesel engine", whose piston is made with the technological cavity:

[mathematical expression not reproducible]. (3)

The constituents of the equation (3) are depicted on the graphs. In fig. 1 space acquires the value of the heat flow for one spin of the crankshaft of the engine, in Fig. 2-the value of the density of work per revolution of the crankshaft of the engine.

Results. When overlaying the area, which is shown in Fig. 2, on the area on Fig. 1 we obtain the conditions for optimal operation of the cylinder-piston group of the engine in which the piston is made with the technological cavity (Fig. 3).

The first two components of the equation (3) [omega]dQ/d[phi]- and [omega]dL/d[phi], are responsible for improving the technology of converting fuel energy into the engine workflow. We propose such an estimation using the coefficient of improvement of the cylinder-piston group design ([k.sub.PB]):

[k.sub.PB] = dL/dQ. (4)

From the above, we can draw the following conclusions.

We review of existing technologies of transformation of heat of combustion of fuel into the engine operation is carried out.

The constructive-technological scheme of conversion of fuel energy into the operation of a diesel engine has been developed. An additional source of energy in the proposed scheme arises from the accumulation of energy in the technological cavity of the modernized piston.

A mathematical model of cylinder-piston group with a modernized piston has been developed.

The optimal mode of operation of the engine is substantiated, in which the work of the cylinderpiston group is completely spent on the implementation of heat in the working process of the engine.

On the basis of the presented material a patent was issued for the technological direction "The method of pneumatic pressuring of the working mixture of a diesel engine" [5].
