EXPERIMENTAL AND THEORETICAL INVESTIGATION OF TURBULENT BURNING MODEL FOR INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES

A model for describing turbulent flame propagation in internal combustion engines is presented. An approximate analytic method for determining the equilibrium state of the burned gases is also presented. To verify the predictions of the model, experiments were carried out in a single-cylinder research engine at speeds from 1000-3200 rpm, spark advances from 30-110 deg btc and fuel-air equivalence ratios from 0.7-1.5. Simultaneous measurements of the cylinder pressure and the position of the flame front as a function of crank angle were made, and good agreement with the predictions of the model was obtained for all operating conditions.
