Knocking in Gasoline Engines

Knocking in Gasoline Engines: 5th International Conference, December 12-13, 2017, Berlin, Germany By Michael Günther
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 381 Pages | ISBN : 3319697595 | 136.89 MB

The book includes the papers presented at the conference discussing approaches to prevent or reliably control knocking and other irregular combustion events. The majority of today’s highly efficient gasoline engines utilize downsizing. High mean pressures produce increased knocking, which frequently results in a reduction in the compression ratio at high specific powers. Beyond this, the phenomenon of pre-ignition has been linked to the rise in specific power in gasoline engines for many years. Charge-diluted concepts with high compression cause extreme knocking, potentially leading to catastrophic failure.
