This book is a comprehensive professional reference on the history, the operating and performance characteristics, and the design of two-stroke cycle engines, presenting a coherent and up-to-date summary of information on this widely used and promising internal combustion engine concept. The book develops a fundamental understanding of the processes essential to the successful operation of the two-stroke cycle engine, and describes and evaluates the various types of models that have been developed to predict aspects of two-stroke engine operation. It reviews and explains the experimental methods that are used in two-stroke engine development and testing. Chapters cover: Overview, Background and History; Gas Exchange Fundamentals; Experimental Methods for Quantifying the Scavenging Process; Mathematical Models of the Scavenging Process; Port, Valve, Intake and Exhaust System Design; Combustion; Emissions Formation and Control; Friction, Lubrication and Wear; and Operating Characteristics of Two-Stroke Engines.
