This publication comprises the complaints of the overseas Symposium on substitute and complicated automobile Engines, held in Vancouver, B.C., on August eleven and 12, 1986. The symposium was once subsidized by means of EXPO 86 and The collage of British Columbia, and was once a part of the really expert sessions software of EXPO 86, the 1986 world's reasonable held in Vancouver. a few eighty attendees have been drawn from eleven nations, representing the tutorial, vehicle­ purpose and massive engine groups. the aim of the symposium was once to supply a severe assessment of the key choices to the inner combustion engine. The scope of the symposium was once restricted to attention of combustion engines, in order that electrical strength, for instance, was once no longer thought of. This used to be no longer a reflec­ tion at the attainable contribution which electrical propulsion may well make sooner or later, yet particularly an try to concentration the lawsuits extra sharply than if all attainable propulsion platforms were thought of. during this means the entire members have been capable of perform the occasionally vigorous dialogue periods following the presentation of every paper.

A brief historical literature survey of the stratified charge engine concept is first presented. Selected stratified charge engine designs are then presented which represent the varied methods devised to achieve stratified charge combustion.

The PROCO engine is an early injection engine where fuel is injected during the compression stroke directly into the cylinder by a conical spray nozzle. M B~R Figure 4. The Ford PROCO Engine (27).

The degree of stratification is controlled by timed fuel injection rather than a precombustion cavity (Categories 3 and 4). Injection timing allows some control on detonation through the stratification process.
