A New Concept for Ultra-Compact Automotive HSDI Diesel Engines 2007-01-1253
The Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering (DIMeC) of the University of Modena and Reggio is developing a new concept of small capacity HSDI 2-Stroke Diesel engine, featuring a specifically designed combustion system. The paper reviews the 2-Stroke engine design process, supported by CFD simulations, both 1D and multi-dimensional.
A four stroke automobile Diesel engine is taken as a reference for a theoretical comparison in terms of brake performance at both full and partial load. This comparison shows the potential of the 2-Stroke, as an ultra-compact, efficient and clean engine.
