A valve actuation mechanism for an internal combustion engine includes rockers moved by a camshaft, each rocker being adapted to exert a valve opening force on at least a portion of a opening actuator of each cylinder, via an activation piston of the rocker movable with respect to the rocker under action of a fluid pressure raise in a chamber, from a first position to a second position, in which a cam follower of the rocker is adapted to read at least one auxiliary valve lift sector of a cam of the camshaft so as to perform an engine operating function. Each rocker includes a valve for releasing fluid from the chamber, wherein the valve actuation mechanism includes, for each rocker, a stopper fast with a housing of the engine and adapted to exert, on a member of the rocker, a variable force for opening the fluid releasing valve..

Method of torque prediction for automotive air conditioning compressor
The torque of a vehicular air-conditioning compressor is predicted by the steps of starting a vehicle air-conditioning system having an engine and engine control module for controlling multiple vehicle functions, calculating a steady state torque value using an rpm value from the engine, calculating an engine rpm transient torque value using the rpm value from the engine, calculating a electronic control valve current transient torque value using a current value applied to an electronic control valve, selecting a final torque value from a group consisting of the steady state torque value, the engine rpm transient torque value, and the electronic control valve transient torque value, and providing a final torque value to the vehicle engine control module to control a predetermined vehicle function.. .

Super-compressible piston shock absorber
Piston-in-cylinder type shock absorbers are disclosed that are compressible to less than half of their extended length, thereby eliminating the current need for automotive suspensions to accommodate unwieldy shock absorbers that, even when fully compressed, must be longer than the amount of permitted axial suspension travel at the shock absorber's connection point. Since the disclosed shock absorbers are super-compressible, they are also super-extendable, which is extendable beyond double their compressed length.
