Compression Ratio Calculator v2.3 for Windows XP/Vista/Win 7/Win 8/Win 10

Computer Program to Calculate Compression Ratio, Boring, Stroking and Other Common Engine Building Dimensions.


Compression Ratio Calculator is probably the most detailed compression ratio calculator program available. It includes these features:

  • Calculating compression ratio, Cylinder Volume, and engine displacement from a variety of different inputs.
  • Finding which input value (chamber CCs, Deck Ht Clearance, etc) will produce a desired C.R. 
  • Determining the % contribution of various dimensions on the overall compression ratio.
  • Calculating Bore/Stroke and Rod/Stroke Ratios.
  • Calculating boring and/or stroking effects.
  • Determining required bore or stroke for a desired displacement.
  • Calculating cranking compression pressure and dynamic compression ratio.
  • Saving and printing specs.
  • Using English or Metric units.
  • Determining Piston Dome or dish volume.
  • Enter Head Gasket volume as Bore and Thickness, or Volume CCs directly.
  • Determining any of the following: rod length, deck height, deck height clearance, piston compression height, or stroke based on you specifying the other 4.

Compression Ratio Calculator PLUS adds even more feature to make this already complete Engine Builder program.  These include:

  • Calculating Effective Compression Ratio (used by supercharger companies to show requirements for boosted engines).
  • Calculating Piston Speed, Gs, and estimating Rod Bolt Loads for a particular RPM.
  • Adding more input details to better estimate Cranking Compression pressure.
  • Being able to pick Gasket Bore Diameter and Gasket Thickness from known FelPro gaskets.
  • Being able to calculate the effect on "Chamber CCs in Head" by milling the Head.

Plus Version's screen, with blue arrows and blue border highlighting some of the additional features.  It also shows the "Pick a Felpro Head Gasket" feature (light blue frame) by clicking on the "Clc" button for Gasket Bore or Gasket Thickness.

 

New Plus Version Options

 

 

Compression Ratio Calculator PRO adds several more feature to make this the "go to" software for professional Engine Builders.  These include:

  • Being able to calculate Piston Dome CCs based on geometry, from either a tapered dome or hemispherical dome.
  • Being able to calculate Piston Dish CCs based on geometry, from either a tapered dome or hemispherical dome, or a radiused flat bottom dish.
  • Being able to calculate Valve Relief CCs based on geometry.
  • Being able to calculate the change in Combustion Chamber CCs by sinking the valves into the head more, or having them protrude more into the chamber.
  • It has an Option setting which allows it to work better with international Regional Settings which use a comma "," for the decimal point instead of the point or period "."
