Two-stroke engines: books - motorcycle engineering

A book on two-stroke engines? Here are illustrated books on the operation, technology and maintenance of 2-stroke motorbikes.

High Performance Two-Stroke Engines

This book analyses the technology of spark ignition two-stroke engines. The presentation is simple and comprehensive. The description of the operating cycle, the fluid dynamics, the lubrication and the cooling systems is followed by painstaking analysis of the mechanical organs, with the materials and the manufacturing processes employed to produce them.

The book is completed by an overview of the history and evolution of these engines and by an examination of the principal types and the diverse fields in which they are employed. The second edition of this work, currently the only one of its kind, has been expanded with an in-depth analysis of the ignition and combustion phases and the formation of the air-fuel mixture, with particular attention paid to the most recent injection systems.

Der schnellaufende Zweitaktmotor - Eine Einführung in die technischen Grundlagen

Einst gelang es dem Schotten Dugald Clerk, mit seiner Entwicklung des Zweitaktmotors das Patent von Nikolaus Otto zu umgehen. Später baute der deutsche Motorrad- und Automobilhersteller DKW den Zweitakter erfolgreich in seine zwei- und vierrädrigen Fahrzeuge ein.
Seine Popularität vor allem bei Autos versandete aber schliesslich u. a. wegen seines penetranten Abgasgeruchs, seinem hohen Ölverbrauch sowie Emissionsproblemen. Dennoch werden auch heute noch Zweitaktmotoren verbaut, ausser in Zweikrafträdern beispielsweise in Kettensägen und Aussenbordmotoren.

Dieser Klassiker der Motor-Literatur, das Standardwerk von H.W. Bönsch, erklärt umfassend und ausführlich die Funktionsweise des Zweitaktmotors. Für Einsteiger und Fachleute gleichermassen, werden hier die technischen Grundlagen detailliert gezeigt.
