Abstract:

The Heat Balanced Engine HBE is a new class of internal combustion engines with unique fuel delivery requirements. In this study the characteristics and requirements of fuel metering and control techniques required for internal combustion engines in general are investigated. A general approach to the design and selection of fuel delivery systems for heat balanced engines has been developed. Using this approach, a particular fuel delivery system compatible with a specific two-stroke heat balanced engine has been selected, fabricated, and installed. An engine testing facility and simple model formulated for the engine have been established and a complete test program outlined. Author
