clean two stroke combustion
r e v i f l o w
Two stroke combustion is assumed to dirty - and generally is using a conventional combustion cycle and valve arrangement.
As inventor of the CLP - compact linked piston engine - I needed a clean two stroke cycle because the linked piston arrangement has relatively heavy pistons. Relatively heavy pistons upscales loadings - with pistons developing an incredible @2000G under load.
However, with a two stroke cycle, the heavy linked piston is able usefully compress the opposing chamber, whilst cushioning piston travel - unloading the piston and crank - almost like a free piston.
soon to be finally applied?
Necessity is the mother of invention, and after studying all the various cycles in 2003-4, what makes them clean, what makes them dirty, a new breathing valve and cycle was proposed to give the clean burn of the four stroke, in a two stroke cycle .
Unfortunately, despite preparing these ideas for launch in 2006, after experiencing three large problems beyond my control in 2004-2008, I was unable to pursue this project further and in addition, all funding applications were rejected.
Contact invited, but an NDA must be signed as part of the review.
