Transcript of Automobiles

The steam carriage was a product of combining the newly invented steam engine and carriage. This was a very slow way of transportation until the gas engine came along. The Steam Carriage In the fifteenth century , the horse drawn carriage was invented for a princess who was to be taken to her wedding in a new way of transportation. This was a very mediocre design because there was no front axle so it had to be dragged sideways to turn. The Horse Carriage brought to you by Hungary The Wheel sponsored by the Ancient Sumerians The wheel was originally thought to be invented by the Ancient Sumerians in 3,500 B.C.E. That wheel was made by combining planks of wood and or large tree loge to roll a cart. But if it wasn't for the ancient neanderthals, we wouldn't have the stone wheel. The stem engine was originally designed by Thomas Newcomen in 1705. This was one of the most widespread engines in its time because of it being the first type of invention which would pave the way for the Industrial Revolution. This works by boiling water at 212 degrees Fahrenheit. The steam then travels through a pipe into the slide valve which uses both the exhaust and steam inlet to push steam into ones side of the piston at a time then pushing the cylinder to use on a wheel to be attached to what ever was needed at the time. Mostly these engines were used on trains due to their cheap cost, and efficiency. This is how the steam engine progressed through the years to give us the internal combustion engine. The steam engine Back in the day when automobiles were a very uncommon sight that had just been produced, they all ran on steam engines. However, few automobiles released after that point were manufactured with internal combustion engines that ran on gas. Gasoline powered engines were a much better alternative to the very low powered steam engine. They moved quicker, were easier to use, and didn't release visible steam. while the most powerful steam engines maxed out at approximately 15 horsepower, gasoline powered engines for automobiles had as much as 100 horsepower. Trains, which also utilized steam engines, had as much as 500 horsepower but used diesel which is a more "dirty" gas . They were much too large and heavy to fit into an automobile, however. Internal combustion engines The The Engine

We have now come to our fuel injected engine. These engines are great and mighty engines where instead of fuel being drawn into cylinders, they are forcefully injected into the pistons so there is less of a pull on the pistons increasing their life and ability to create mechanical energy. These are a great jump in engine technology. As you can see, we have described to you, the development of h automobile. This invention, without a doubt has changed millions of lives forever for the rest of time. We have many people to thank for this,only some who include
Henry Ford
Thomas Savery
Carl Benz - Mercedes-Benz
Louis-Rene Panhard
Emile Levassor
and countless others. Without this great invention, humanity probably wouldn't be where it is today. Think about it! The Automobile GOOGLE IMAGES





YOUTUBE.COM Sources The Model T The first production Model T Ford was assembled at the Piquette Avenue Plant in Detroit on October 1, 1908. Over the next 19 years, Ford would build 15,000,000 automobiles with the Model "T" engine, the longest run of any single model apart from the Volkswagen Beetle. From 1908-1927, the Model T would endure with little change in its design. Henry Ford had succeeded in his quest to build a car for the masses. -allyoncars.blogspot.coma OVER 15,000,000 SOLD 1947 1992 1966 1957 1947 ford truck with a more aerodynamic rocket ship feel like many cars from the 40's had 1957 Chevy Bel-air a popular high class vehicle now continuing with the bubble shape but with a rear that has fins, this would start to take shape of planes at the time. This Buick Wildcat is a perfect example to show how the aerodynamic bubble car with fins has evolved to a cutback and clean cruising car. At this time, this car was a luxury at only around $3,000! The 1970 Ford mustang was an iconic american muscle car. From the 1960's to the late 70's was the muscle car era and bloomed with high power engines . The 1982 Corvette is an outstanding car to show the development of the american car manufacturing minds. This car was a rare car to be seen on the road 30 years ago. This car had a suburb aerodynamic body with a blazing engine. The Mercedes-Benz 400e was a powerful car yet was a german engineered car. This is about the time where the boom for european cars begins and a new demand is in place, a everyday car with a everyday look, but a engine capable of over 300 HP stock! Today we can see the modern SUV suited with the needs of the family, yet the power of a NASCAR driver. Today is where style, luxury, and power collide to form a awesome car. Yet, we can never forget the days where cars were built out of solid metal and took hundreds of thousands of men to produce. This is a comparison of a 1950's engine to today's modern engines. Lets find a way to make human transportation easier. 1982 1970 2012 This engine uses a manifold where the piston draws in fuel, creating a suction that the engine uses to combust. While this uses fuel injection and electronics. The radiator cools the engine by running the hot water (which the heat came from the hot engine) into long tubes that are cooled from the coolant they are run through. These are all packed into the radiator pushed by a pump through the engine. automatic transmission INFO TIMELINE Random Arrow
