Abstract

The effects of swirl and turbulence of a gas on the burning rate in a cylinder were studied with a single-compression test equipment, in which the flow conditions were varied by changing the flow-in direction of the gas to the cylinder with adjustable vanes. The influences of the spark location and the rotational speed of the equipment on the burning rate were also studied by means of both pressure measurements and direct photography of the flame propagation.
