Diesel Engines – How They Are Made?

The diesel engine/ compression-ignition/ CI engine, named after Rudolf Diesel, is an internal combustion engine. The ignition of the fuel which is injected into the combustion chamber is caused by the elevated temperature of the air in the cylinder due to mechanical compression (adiabatic compression). These engines work by compressing only the air. Check out the video below – you can see the incredible process of how a diesel engine is made!
