Abstract:

An outline is given of the theoretical analyses carried out for estimating the power requirements of two sliding vane compressor designs, adapted for high speed operation, to determine if advantages exist over a trailing vane compressor, previously used for air scavenging in an experimental two stroke piston engine. Keywords Two stroke cycle engines Power consumption Australia.
