Design of a Restricted Induction System for a High Speed Four Cylinder Engine 2000-01-3090
Members of the 2000 Lawrence Technological University Formula SAE (FSAE) team are currently developing a new prototype intake system to be used on the new Formula vehicle. The vehicle will be using a 600 cubic centimeter four stroke Honda motorcycle engine. As required by the rules of FSAE, the intake system must be restricted to limit the engines potential to produce power. Development work was done using a flow test bench and engine dynamometer on all available previous designs. The two best previous designs were then compared to help determine the optimized dimensions and geometry for the new design. After the new prototype model was finished it was tested to validate theoretical calculations and overall performance.
