Title: Design and simulation of two-stroke engines

Abstract

SAE originally published author Gordon Blair`s The Basic Design of Two-Stroke Engines in 1990. Since that time, Professor Blair has developed substantive new theories related to the two-stroke engine. His work has been so extensive in this area that it became necessary to publish a greatly expanded book on the topic. The changes were such that the book could not merely be called a ``second edition.`` Design and Simulation of Two-Stroke Engines discusses principles of automotive design which are specific to this engine type. The book includes new theory which the author has developed that has not been published before, particularly in relation to two-stroke engines, including: unsteady gas flow in engine ducting; scavenging flow within the cylinder; two-zone combustion to compute exhaust emissions; computation of intake and exhaust sound pressure levels; discharge coefficients of ports and valves. The author, having designed and developed many two-stroke engines, offers practical and empirical assistance to the engine designer on an array of topics ranging from porting layout, to combustion chamber profile, to tuned exhaust pipes. The information presented extends from the most fundamental theory to pragmatic design, development, and experimental testing issues. The author explains in great detail the theoretical fundamentals ofmore » unsteady gas flow, combustion, and scavenging. This has resulted in two engine simulation models and a set of computer software programs which are described and demonstrated in the book. An essential book for automotive designers, students, and anyone needing a complete insight into the two-stroke engine.« less
