Material Selection

Size of the valve port:
v p∗a p = a*v


= Men Velocity Of Gas

flowing through the port (m/s)


=Area Of The Valve Port



Low speed ( inlet valve =33 to 40
Exhaust valve =40 to 50)

a = Area of the piston
v = Velocity of the piston

(¿¿ p)

High speed( inlet valve =80 to 90
Exhaust valve=90 to 100)

Thickness of the Valve

K= constant




K=0.42 ( Steel)
Diameter of the port(mm)



P= Maximum pressure (N/




b= (Alloy Steel = 100 to 120
