The scavenging picture means here the velocity distribution of the scavenging flow in the cylinder measured by a pitot tube. The picture is often used to investigate the suitability of the design of the scavenging system in a two-stroke cycle engine. In measurements by pitot tube only the upward component of the velocity has been measured until now. By this improvement, however, it is well possible to measure the velocity in three dimensions. In other words, it is now possible to measure also the scavenging flow toward the exhaust port after the flow turns downward at the cylinder head.
