Diesel Cycle FAQs:

Q: Is a Diesel Cycle a combustion process of a reciprocating internal combustion engine?

A: Yes.

Q: Is a Diesel Cycle assumed to have constant pressure during the initial part of the combustion phase?

A: Yes, This is an idealized mathematical model: real physical diesels do have an increase in pressure during this period, but it is less pronounced than in the Otto cycle.

Q: Is a Diesel Cycle dependent on the compression ratio and the cut-off ratio?

A: Yes.
