Abstract

The effect of changes in atmospheric pressure and temperature on the performance of a crankcase-scavenged spark-ignition two-stroke cycle engine has been investigated. A detailed computer code has been developed to simulate the two-stroke cycle and was used to evaluate an optimal engine design for best performances at high altitude conditions. The model which includes detailed computations of the scavenging process, calculations of the flows into and out of the engine, empirical expressions for the combustion process, and a practical approach for the heat transfer has been calibrated by using experimental results.
