Port Height Above BDC

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This script calculates the approximate two cycle engine port height (piston above BDC) for timing opening and subsequent closing. Data can be input and calculated in any designation so long as it is consistent. Enter the values for stroke, connecting rod length and open duration (in degrees) of the port. Click on Calculate. The resulting calculation is in either metric or US designated values, depending on your entered values.

For purposes of OUR calculator, we define Duration as the number of degrees of crankshaft rotation that a port is open. Port timing is the degrees of crankshaft rotation after TDC to where port starts to open. Top Dead Center (TDC) is the top of the piston's stroke and Bottom Dead Center (BDC) is the bottom of the piston's stroke. A Port is an airway or duct that is cast or machined into the cylinder. The Crank Angle is the crankshaft rotation measured in degrees. There are 360 degrees total.

Obviously, this is a very close approximation due to small inaccuracies on variable data input. Also please see our Port Timing Duration Calculator for two cycle engines and our Timing Mark Calculator for all engines.
