In this study, a single-rotor multi side port Wankel research engine and a single cylinder spark ignition (SI) engine having three different type combustion chamber geometry (MR, Cylindrical bowl, Flat) were used. Engine experiments were performed at 2000 rpm, 3 bar and 5 bar bmep (brake mean effective pressure) and stoichiometric conditions. Combustion analysis was performed for Wankel and a reciprocating SI engine with three types combustion chamber geometries, which are not included in the literature.
