CFD Simulation and Validation of the Scavenging Process in a 125cc 2-Stroke Racing Engine 2006-32-0061

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is frequently used to predict complex flow phenomena and assist in engine design and optimization. The scavenge process within a 2-stroke engine is key to engine performance especially in high performance racing applications. In this paper, FLUENT CFD code is used to simulate the scavenging process within a 125cc single cylinder racing engine. A variety of different port designs are simulated and scavenge characteristics compared and contrasted. The predicted CFD results are compared with measured scavenge data obtained from the QUB single-cycle scavenge rig. These results show good agreement and provide valuable insight into the effect of port design features on the scavenging process.
