3-D Computations to Improve Combustion in a Stratified-Charge Rotary Engine Part IV: Modified Geometries 930679
A three-dimensional model for a direct injection stratified-charge rotary engine has been employed to study two modifications to the pocket geometry of the engine. In one modification, a pocket is located towards the leading edge of the rotor and is shown to produce recirculation within the pocket and faster burning. In the second modification, a two pocket rotor with two injectors and two spark plugs is studied. It appears that this should result in better utilization of the chamber air. It also appears that both modifications rhould result in higher efficiency of the direct-injected stratifiedcharge rotary engine. However extensive computations are required before a final conclusion is reached and before specific recommendations can be made.
