Current stratified charge engine designs may not fully realize their potential for in-chamber control of exhaust emissions. That's the conclusion drawn from a recent Southwest Research Institute study of unthrottled open-chamber stratified charge powerplants. The researchers state that more detailed knowledge is needed concerning the various mixing processes (fuel jet air entrainment, diffusion, and mixing due the swirl/density gradient), and innovative thinking is required in other critical areas (injection nozzle design, lean-mixture ignition, and control of cylinder air motion and turbulence).
