Abstract:

A new approach is needed to bypass the problems which have thus far limited the development of small heavy-fuel engines. Typically these compromised engine designs are hard to start, they do not burn the fuel cleanly or completely, their ignition timing is inconsistent, their high peak pressures result in short component lifecycles, they produce excessive emissions, their fuel consumption is high, and power output low. Iron Bay Model Company proposes to investigate a recently patented Compression Ignition engine that is capable of maintaining precise control over the timing of the auto-ignition process.
