Mean Piston Velocity Formula = 2.0 x Stroke x rpm
Mean Piston Speed is important to engine designers so that: i) Piston rod breakages
can be avoided and, ii) Loss of engine power can be avoided by ensuring that the
Piston does not outrun the flame front.
Mean Piston Velocity
Note: In one revolution the maximum distance travelled by the piston = 2.0 * Stroke
