Analytical Investigation to Predict the Intake pipe Diameter in Naturally Aspirated Internal Combustion Engine

Mahmoud A. Mashkour

Abstract:
An analytical solution to estimate the effective diameter of a naturally aspirated internal combustion engine intake pipe is presented in this paper. A formula to predict the effective diameter for the geometry of the intake pipe as a function of cylinder bore, stroke, engine speed, pipe length, ambient temperature and aerodynamic losses, is created. In this analysis, the kinetic energy of a charge column in the period of a filling cylinder and the maximum kinetic energy are taken into consideration. A comparison between the results of the novel suggested formula and the actual published work to determine the intake pipe diameter is done for different engines. The results indicated that a good agreement to estimate the intake pipe diameter, especially in high-speed engines is obtained.
