Title (EN) COMBUSTION CHAMBER CONSTRUCTIONS FOR OPPOSED-PISTON ENGINES
(FR) TYPES DE CHAMBRE DE COMBUSTION POUR MOTEURS À PISTONS OPPOSÉS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A combustion chamber for an opposed-piston engine includes a squish zone defined between circumferential peripheral areas of opposing end surfaces of the pistons, a cavity defined by one or more bowls in the end surfaces, and at least one injection port that extends radially through the squish zone into the cavity. The cavity has a cross-sectional shape that imposes a tumbling motion on air flowing from the squish zone into the cavity.
(FR)Une chambre de combustion pour moteur à pistons opposés comprend une zone de pression définie entre des régions périphériques circonférentielles des surfaces d'extrémité opposées des pistons, une cavité définie par une ou plusieurs cuvettes dans lesdites surfaces d'extrémité et au moins un orifice d'injection s'étendant radialement au travers de la zone de pression et dans la cavité. De par sa section en coupe, la cavité imprime un mouvement tourbillonnant à l'air sortant de la zone de pression et entrant à la cavité.
