Abstract
A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF R & D WORK HAS BEEN DONE FOR THE WANKEL ROTARY ENGINE APPLICATION TO AUTOMOBILES, PLANES, ETC. RESULTING IN SIGNIFICANT PROGRESS. THE PERFORMANCE, RELIABILITY AND DURABILITY THAT THE WANKEL HAS DEMONSTRATED, HOWEVER, FALLS SHORT OF THE POPULAR DIESEL ENGINE. THE ADIABATIC, TURBOCOMPOUND CONCEPT THAT HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED FOR THE DIESEL IS THOUGHT TO BE MORE BENEFICIAL TO THE ROTARY ENGINE. PHASE I IS CONCERNED WITH AN ANALYTICAL STUDY OF AN ADVANCED WANKEL ENGINE WHICH WILL INCORPORATE ALL THE ESSENTIAL FEATURES OF AN ADIABATIC DIESEL ENGINE. SOME OF THESE FEATURES INCLUDE EXTENSIVE USE OF CERAMIC WEAR COATINGS, TURBOCHARGING AND COMPOUNDING, HIGHER COMPRESSION RATIO AND FASTER COMBUSTION.
