intake port


Laminar Flow?

a: Intake port ~
b: water flowing down a river

What: "Air flowing though an intake port is like water flowing down a river. The sides of a flowing river have slow moving water and just like air moving though an intake port it sides have slow air movement. This slow moving boundary layer of air is about 1/32 of inch thick and can collect any big fuel droplets that drop out of the main air stream flowing though an intake port. Also keep in mind that this boundary layer of air will increase in size when the engine is running at lower speeds. Now you can see how fuel will puddle on the polished port walls just like a cold soda can with water on its sides."
