RESEARCH ON A DUAL-CHAMBER STRATIFIED CHARGE ENGINE

One alternative to the problem of improving fuel consumption while reducing high exhaust emissions is the dual chamber stratified charge spark ignition engine. This paper describes the various phases of the research program now being conducted. Its purpose is to better understand the basic combustion process in this type of engine and the fundamental limitations involved. Typical results obtained in the initial phases of study are illustrated.
