Reference information:
Ref 1: "Espacio muerto (o volumen perjudicial) corresponde al volumen residual entre el pistón y el fondo del cilindro y las lumbreras de las válvulas, cuando el pistón está en su punto muerto."

Ref 2: "Clearance pocket valves alter the cylinder head space (clearance volume). They may be fixed or variable volume."

De acuerdo a esto, podrías ser espacion muerto/perjudicial variable.
