HIGH SPEED KNOCK IN S.I. ENGINES
The importance of minimizing fuel consumption has necessitated the study of knock which drastically limits the attainment of high combustion efficiency in current s.i. engines. In the present work, four aspects of this phenomenon have been examined: 1.) Knock intensity levels encountered during actual service operation of European cars. 2.) Knock intensity levels that do not cause engine damage in endurance tests. 3.) Factors affecting the knocking behavior of a fuel. 4.) The meaning of the knock rating characteristics of a gasoline using the research and motor methods.
