Description

By: Dr John C. Dixon .

The two-stroke engine is widely used in both motorcycle racing and kart racing. The mechanical simplicity of the two-stroke engine gives it tremendous appeal, and makes it a tempting target for tuning operations, but the key to successful design, development and modification is knowledge of the engine's operating principles.

This in-depth technical study of two-stroke theory and practice is intended to help would-be engine tuners to better understand the engine and the processes taking place within it, and thereby to obtain improved performance.

  • A highly detailed, fully illustrated study of all aspects of high-performance two-stroke engine theory, design and tuning.
  • Historical development, engine geometry, kinematics, dynamics and fluid dynamics.
  • The inlet system, the transfer system, scavenging and the exhaust system.
  • Head design and combustion, fuels, performance analysis, tuning.
  • The effects of thermal expansion.
  • Appendices of important data, material properties and nomenclature.
