RECENT ADVANCES IN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE INSTRUMENTATION WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO HIGH-SPEED DATA ACQUISITION AND AUTOMATED TEST BED
The development of instrumentation techniques for research in internal combustion engines is described. A general discussion of instrument classification and requirements is followed by a description of transducer development including calibration techniques, signal processing, and data acquisition. Details are given of two direct on-line digitizing devices for high-speed data acquisition (one purpose made and the other using an on-line computer). An analysis of instrumentation and data acquisition errors is presented. The integration of the data acquisition equipment into a semi-automatic controlled test bed is described and a proposal for a fully automated test bed presented.
