Scavenge Streams Analysis in High Speed 2T Gasoline Engine 2002-01-2180
In two stroke engines, the scavenging process has direct influence in the performance of combustion process and then retains great importance in the strategies oriented towards solutions characterized by improvements of fuel efficiency, engine power output and reductions of pollutant emissions.
The authors have developed an integrated numerical-experimental predictive tool, based on a two-step procedure, in which zero-dimensional, one-dimensional and three-dimensional simulation models are applied.
In this paper, the attention is focused on the analysis in detail of different flow patterns which contribute to determine the scavenging process in order to provide a better comprehension and then to get improvement of such complex process.
Since the scavenging efficiency strongly depends on the geometry of the engine system, the effect of a variation of the geometrical parameters on the flow paths and on the distribution of the scavenge streams is investigated.
