Abnormal combustion in spark ignition engines

Abstract:

Emissions from internal combustion engines are a major contributor to anthropogenic climate change. In order to decrease the amount of emissions, car manufacturers are investing in increasing the efficiency of spark ignition engines. Means for this include downsizing and turbocharging which come with an exacerbated risk of abnormal and harmful combustion phenomena, notably autoignition, knock and pre-ignition and thus pose a limit to the efficiency of the engines.
