I n this case the effects of heat transfer are small enough to be handled by approximate methods 0. Computations of 2-stroke-cycle air-capacity and trapping efficiency are less convincing because of unknown relations i n the flow and mixing process during scavenging.
Attempts at predicting heat-transfer rates are also limited by lack of reliable instantaneous local coefficients 0. Uncertainties here also handicap computation of over-all engine performance.
A large number of performance computations for complete engines has been published, including comparisons with measured results 0. It is obvious that the actual number of variables affecting engine performance is beyond the capacity of present computers and that the knowledge necessary to program many of the variables is inadequate.
Ideally, the omitted items should be those that have very small effects. The quality of the program thus depends heavily on the skill of the operator in determining which items should be included and which left out.
Of the factors known to be important, many cannot be theoretically programed because of lack of basic data. Thus, the engine programs so far developed have been based partly on theory and partly on assumptions for such unknown factors as instantaneous heat-transfer rates, combustion rates, turbulence, friction, etc.
By adjusting the assumptions to agree with measured results, several programs have been made to agree fairly well with measurements from one particular engine size and type.
Since most programs published to date ignore cylinder-size effects as outlined in Volume I, Chapter 11 and the effects of many design details, the quantitative results cannot be taken as applying very far outside the type and size of engine to which these programs apply.
In spite of these limitations, computer technology is already a very valuable tool for the indication of trends in engine performance, even though absolute values are not necessarily accurate. Once a program is set up, many important variables can be investigated over very wide ranges, with expenditures of cost and time incomparably less than would be required for actual engine tests. Computer techniques intelligently programed and interpreted promise to furnish a basis for rapid strides in the improvement of engine performance and engine design.
References to the use of computers for various aspects of engine design and performance will be found in many sections of the bibliography. Combustion in SparkIgnition Engines I : Normal Combustion The conventional spark-ignition engine is supplied with a mixture of fuel and air which is quite homogeneous and essentially gaseous by the time ignition occurs.
Therefore this chapter will be devoted principally to the subject of combustion in homogeneous, gaseous mixtures. Deliberate use of nonhomogeneous mixtures in spark-ignition engines has been under development for many years but has never attained commercial importance.
Since the principal purpose of such charge stratijication is usually to control detonation, this question will be discussed in Chapter 2. Portions of this work that are closely related to the internalcombustion engine are noted in the bibliography applying to this chapter.
These investigations include experiments using engines as well as work with other apparatus, such as steady-flow systems and various forms of containers, or bombs.
This research has shown that combustion in a gaseous fuel-air mixture ignited by a spark is characterized by the more or less rapid development of a flame that starts from the ignition point and spreads in a continuous manner outward from the ignition point.
When this spread continues to the end of the chamber without abrupt change in its speed or shape, combustion is called normal. When the mixture appears to ignite and burn ahead of the flame, the phenomenon is called autoignition. When there is a sudden increase in the reaction rate, accompanied by measurable pressure waves, the phenomenon is called detonation.
Autoignition and detonation are discussed in the next chapter. Here only normal combustion will be dealt with. Because combustion in fuel-air mixtures occurs with great rapidity and at very high temperatures, observation of the chemical processes involved is very difficult. In spite of continuing research in this field, theories of combustion and flame propagation remain highly speculative 1. The chemical composition of the unburned gases and that of the products of combustion after cooling can be determined.
However, experimental evidence indicates that the transition between these states involves numerous intermediate compounds. A theory now generally accepted is that combustion of fuel-air mixtures depends on chain reactions, in which a few highly active constituents cause reactions which in turn generate additional active constituents in addition to end products, thus multiplying the number of reactions until combustion is complete to equilibrium or else until a point is reached where chainbreaking reactions overcome the chain-forming ones.
In the flame front, the chain-forming reactions can only reach a certain distance into the relatively cool, unburned charge before they are broken, and thus a definite flame boundary is established. However, if the unburned gases become hot enough to sustain chain reactions, the remaining gas will suddenly autoignite.
The chain-reaction theory is discussed more fully in the next chapter, and quite fully in the literature 1. In this chapter subsequent discussion will be concerned with the observable physical aspects of combustion as they affect engine operation.
