Mean Piston Speed Formula

Mean or Average  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. Note: In one revolution the maximum distance travelled by the piston = 2.0 * Stroke
