Three-Cylinder, Naturally Aspirated, Two-Stroke Automotive Engines - A Performance Potential Evaluation 901667

The importance of exhaust system design for three cylinder two-stroke engines is demonstrated using a thermodynamic model developed at The Queen's University of Belfast. The influence of the major exhaust parameters on wide open throttle power and bmep is investigated. In addition, the potential benefits of reed valve induction over piston port induction at low engine speeds are demonstrated for one particular engine configuration.
