Fuel requirements of spark ignition engines

Abstract:

This paper reviews the fundamental requirements of liquid hydrocarbon fuels for spark-ignition engines, namely that the fuel should vaporize satisfactorily and burn in a controlled manner. The phenomenon of knock and the development of the octane scale are discussed. The variation in pressure time histories between engines is discussed, along with how this leads to different fuel requirements. The difference in the octane rating tests, and how engine down-sizing exacerbates these differences ...
