The Case for New Divided-Chamber Diesel Combustion Systems
Part Two: Critical Analysis of, and Solutions for, Swirl-Prechamber Engines 2001-01-0274
This paper discusses the background of the Ricardo “Comet” Mk Vb Swirl System and reviews, step-by-step, its combustion kinetics; revealing where the problems are and insinuating how careful attention to detail can solve them. New valve-timing philosophies for improved air cycles are explained in detail. A new swirl-prechamber combustion system, applicable to two or three-valve engines, is presented.
