Abstract

A theoretical model of turbulent flame propagation in a reciprocating stratified charge engine is developed and calculations of temperature and species concentrations as functions of space and time are made. Also pressure is calculated as a function of time. A spacial variation of mixture ratio is considered such that there is a fuel-rich region in the center of the cylinder and a fuel-lean region near the cylinder walls. The spark in the fuel-rich region results in a premixed-type of flame propagating toward the walls. A diffusion-type flame results in the wake of the other flame due to the mixing of the excess air and fuel.
