Total Displacement

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

In engine design, the total displacement is the amount of volume displaced by engine cylinders.  It is measured in cubic inches, cubic cylinders or liters. 

\(\large{ DISP = NOC \; \frac{\large{\pi}}{2} \; BORE^2 \; STROKE }\)

Where:

\(\large{ DISP }\) = total displacement

\(\large{ BORE }\) = cylinder bore size

\(\large{ NOC }\) = number of cylinders

\(\large{ STROKE }\) = piston stroke length
