PREDICTION AND MEASUREMENT OF TWO-STROKE CYCLE DIESEL ENGINE PERFORMANCE AND SMOKE AT ALTITUDE

A simplified mathematical model for predicting the altitude performance and smoke of a turbocharged two-stroke cycle Diesel engine is developed utilizing a baseline perturbation methodology. The predicted peformance at altitude is compared to the actual performance of an engine obtained from test results in an altitude chamber. Considering the simplifying assumptions made in developing the model, the results are satisfactory. This paper describes the modeling and testing procedure of a turbocharged two-stroke cycle Diesel engine at altitude.
