  • Patent number: 11448156
    Abstract: An engine control apparatus includes an ignition control section and an injection control section. When partial compression ignition combustion is carried out, the ignition control section causes an ignition plug to carry out: main ignition in which a spark is generated in a late period of a compression stroke or an initial period of a expansion stroke to initiate the SI combustion; and preceding ignition in which the spark is generated at earlier timing than the main ignition. Also, when the partial compression ignition combustion is carried out, the injection control section causes the injector to inject fuel at such timing that the fuel exists in a cylinder at an earlier time point than the preceding ignition. Energy of the preceding ignition is set to be lower when an in-cylinder temperature specified by an in-cylinder temperature specification section is high than when the in-cylinder temperature is low.

  • Patent number: 11440448
    Abstract: There are improved a vibration absorption characteristic and an impact absorption characteristic. In a suspension mechanism 1 of the present invention, first and second dampers (150, 160) are suspended in parallel between an upper frame (120) and a lower frame (110) with mounting angles different from each other. For this reason, the smaller mounting angle the damper has, the smaller a vertical component of damping force becomes, and the damping force which acts on the upper frame (120) and the lower frame (110) which move up and down relatively is moderate in effectiveness as compared with a case of disposing all the dampers at the same mounting angle. Thus, a sense of incongruity in which strong damping force acts abruptly is suppressed and the vibration absorption characteristic and the impact absorption characteristic are improved, which leads to improvement in ride comfort.

  • Publication number: 20220234482
    Abstract: The operation in a closing direction and the operation in an opening direction of a storage rack are performed efficiently with small force. Fixed frames and a storage rack are connected by link mechanisms, and the link mechanism includes fixed-side links linked to the fixed frame and movable-side links linked to the storage rack. When a position of one ends of the movable-side links is located closer to one ends of the fixed-side links than a balanced point, the elastic member biases the storage rack in an open-position direction. In the open position, since the elastic member biases the storage rack in the opening direction, an open state is maintained as long as the position of the one ends of the movable-side links does not return to the change point position. Accordingly, the open position can be held by a simple structure without using electric power.
