  Piston - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In general, a piston is a sliding plug that fits closely inside the bore of a cylinder.
The piston is an important component of a piston engine and of hydraulic pneumatic systems.
As the piston moves inside the cylinder, it transforms the energy from the expansion of a burning gas (usually a mixture of petrol or diesel and air) into mechanical power (in the form of a reciprocating linear motion).

 Walter Piston - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At the Ecole Nationale de Musique in Paris, Piston studied composition and counterpoint with Nadia Boulanger, composition with Paul Dukas and violin with George Enescu.
Piston wrote four books on the technical aspects of music theory which are considered to be classics in their respective fields: Principles of Harmonic Analysis, Counterpoint, Orchestration and Harmony.
Piston's handwriting was so neat that almost all his orchestral scores were published as facsimiles of his original scores, and he also wrote the musical examples in the textbooks he authored.

Each piston is inside a cylinder, into which a gas is introduced, either already hot and under pressure, or heated inside the cylinder by ignition of a fuel air mixture.
The piston is returned to the cylinder top (Top dead centre) either by a flywheel or the power from other pistons connected to the same shaft.
The linear movement of the piston is converted to a circular movement via a connecting rod and a crankshaft or by a swashplate.

This piston crown has been damaged because debris entered the combustion chamber and was crushed between the piston and the cylinder head.
A four-corner seizure is caused when the piston expands faster than the cylinder and the clearance between the piston and cylinder is reduced.
Install one circlip in the piston, install the piston into the cylinder with the pin hole exposed, install the piston pin through one side of the piston, position the cylinder over the connecting rod and push the piston pin through until it bottoms against the circlip, install the other circlip.

 What is Piston Slap
It is the secondary (sideways or perpendicular) movement of a piston against the side of a cylinder bore where the primary movement of a piston is intended to be parallel (up and down) to the cylinder bore.
The audible noise associated with excessive piston slap is due to the perpendicular impact of the piston against the wall of the cylinder bore.
The pistons then expand with heat reducing the piston to cylinder bore clearance thus, reducing the perpendicular impact of the piston against the cylinder wall and its resulting noise.

 Classical Net - Basic Repertoire List - Piston
Walter Piston, the grandson of an Italian seaman (the original family name was Pistone), was born in Maine in 1894.
Piston returned to America in 1926 and was appointed to the faculty of Harvard, where he remained until 1960, composing, teaching, and writing.
Piston's music is beautifully crafted and technically assured, qualities which, combined with his reputation as a pedagogue, have occasionally given the mistaken impression (as is also true of Hindemith) that he is little more than a conservative, dry, academic composer.

 Howstuffworks "How Hydraulic Machines Work"
When force is applied to the left piston, it will move nine units for every one unit that the right piston moves, and the force is multiplied by nine on the right-hand piston.
Assume that the piston on the left is 2 inches in diameter (1-inch radius), while the piston on the right is 6 inches in diameter (3-inch radius).
The area of the left piston is therefore 3.14, while the area of the piston on the right is 28.26.

 Walter Piston
Born 20 January 1894 in Rockland, Maine, Walter Piston was recognized in his lifetime as the ultimate musical craftsman, producing a body of orchestral and chamber work distinguished by its quintessential neo-classic qualities of clarity and proportion.
Returning to the United States, Piston developed a sophisticated and witty compositional style, capturing with precise accuracy the many cultural and philosophic trappings of his native New England.
Piston enjoyed a close working relationship with Serge Koussevitzky and the Boston Symphony Orchestra which commissioned several works from the composer.

 Opposed piston engine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An opposed piston engine is one in which the cylinders are double-ended, with a piston at each end and no cylinder-head.
Each piston is referred to as either an intake piston or an exhaust piston depending on its function in this regard.
In the Jumo 205 and its variants, the upper crankshaft serves the exhaust pistons, and the lower crankshaft the intake pistons.

 Piston Removal
Also, as the cylinder is pressurized, it stretches in an outward direction, loosening its grip on the piston and allowing minute amounts of grease to creep along the sides of the piston.
When the piston finally comes out, that 600 psi of air is going to expand rapidly, distributing a slick layer of grease on the ceiling, the walls, the floor, the dog, and your pretty face.
Of course now that the piston was out, there remained the problem of removing the four or five gallons of grease from the cylinder.

 Doppler Distortion: Piston Vibrating in a Tube Including the Effect of Excursion
Thus the piston velocity of equation (2) does not match the sound wave velocity of equation (3) at the interface of the piston and the air.
If we assume that the same phase change occurs when the piston face is displaced dynamically from its center of vibration, then there is a phase modulation of the signal due to the piston excursion.
If the musical instrument is a piston in the tube, and if the microphone is a piston in the tube, and if the speaker is a piston in the tube, in principle I think this is possible.

 NetLogo Models Library: GasLab Adiabatic Piston
The piston has weight which pushes it down, and the gas particles push upward against the piston when they collide with it.
If the piston is moving upward at that moment, the particle bounces off at a slightly smaller speed.
The change is not large, because the piston is much heavier than each particle; but the accumulated effect of many particle collisions is enough to hold the piston up.

 CanadianDriver: Auto Tech - Noisy engine? It might be "piston slap"
In simple terms, piston slap occurs when the piston is forced rapidly against the side of the engine cylinder wall.
To keep the piston close to the cylinder yet allow room for expansion, the piston skirt (the part that slides against the cylinder) is tapered - it is bigger at the bottom than at the top.
Thus, the large sides of the piston always stay close to the cylinder and piston slap is avoided.

 Checking Piston to Valve Clearance
Piston to valve contact is probably one of the most common causes of damage to a racing engine.
Anytime you make a change to your engine in relation to the cam lift, cam timing, pistons, cylinder heads, rockers arms, or anything else that can change, even so slightly, the position of the valve in relation to the piston, you MUST verify that you have the minimum clearances safely met.
An easy trick is to have one of the other pistons and you can write on top of it with a thin marker the various measurement locations.

 Piston Diagnosis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
If you require an engine rebuild due to failure then please supply the pistons as well so that we are able to more accurately diagnose the cause of the failure and take appropriate action to prevent it reoccurring, or advise of changes needed to the bike set up.
Reason - If the piston to cylinder clearance is too large it allows the piston to rattle inside the cylinder bore, with time the piston develops stress fractures and eventually cracks.
This problem isn't necessarily dangerous and doesn't cause catastrophic piston failure, but it should be addressed by thoroughly flushing the cylinder and re-honing the bore to redefine the cross-hatching marks.

 Piston Problem
For example, if we want to know the displacement of a piston and use "x" as a displacement variable, "x" will be the main variable in the equations of motion and that "x" correspond to Y in the left bracket.
Even for somewhat complicated problem, it is still not that difficult to write this relations (and they are called state variables) of the variables and their derivatives.
As we saw in the constant input part (the very first part of the main program), the length of the bar 1 was 1 (m), the length of the bar 2 was 2 (m).

 Walkthrough E1-Piston
to cause a piston, driven by a crank, to move realistically, and in a straight line (as might be inside the cylinder of a steam or petrol engine).
Make the Piston move left and right in a straight line (as it would slide in and out of an engine cylinder) in a way as in a real engine (that is, slowing down at each end of its movement).
We need to have a system to drive the piston right and left in a realistic way, which means that it must slow down at both ends of its movement.
