How to use cylinder barrel in a sentence
The combustion head and valve pockets were cast together with the cylinder barrel, and were not water cooled.A History of Aeronautics | E. Charles Vivian
The cylinders of this Daimler engine were cast iron, the cylinder barrel, head, and water jacket being cast in one piece.
With the separate cylinder barrel they were now almost committed to a three-piece cylinder.
This can be seen in Figure 6, where the circular flange on the valve box contacts both the crankcase and the cylinder barrel.
The water-cooled area of the cylinder barrel was increased by nearly ten percent but the head remained only partially cooled.
