2.Fuels used in combustion and alternative engines, their evaluation and operational properties (allowance 2/2)
3.Combustion of carbohydrate fuels, their thermochemistry and coefficient of air excess (allowance 2/2)
4.Working cycles of piston combustion engines (ideal, calculated and real) (allowance 2/2)
5.Thermal balance of vehicle engines (allowance 2/2)
6.Efficiency of vehicle engines (chemical, thermic, indicated, mechanic, volume and solidity ratio of p V diagrams (allowance 2/2)
7.Supercharging of vehicle engines (reasons and methods) (allowance 2/2)
8.Creation and burning of fuel mixtures in ignition and diesel engines. Facilities for creation of air-fuel mixtures (allowance 2/2)
9.Exhalations in ignition and diesel engines and possibilities of their reduction (allowance 2/2)
10.Comparative parameters of vehicle engines (allowance 1/1)
11.Characteristics of vehicle engines (including their use in practice) (allowance 2/2)
