Abstract
The report presents the development of a two and three-dimensional computer code for scavenging studies, and the development of a thermodynamic simulation model for performance studies. The effect of the inlet velocity orientation during scavenging is investigated and the optimum swirl and flow inclination angles are presented. The effect of the cylinder head design using two instead of four exhaust valves is analyzed. Three cylinder designs that can be used in two-stroke engines are investigated. The alternative designs can produce engines with greater reliability and durability and also reduce the capital and maintenance cost. The cold start behavior of the GM6V53T engine is investigated using the commercially available KIVA code.
