Effect of Sound Intensity on Knock Ratings 310026

MEASURING knock-sound intensity by a microphone and vacuum-tube amplifying set is described in this paper. Widely varying fuels are compared with mixtures of normal heptane and iso-octane at knock intensities ranging from incipient knock to a knock severe enough to cause preignition. The conclusion is drawn that, for tests on the L-head Cooperative Fuel-Research knock-testing engine, the intensity of knock at which tests are made does not affect the knock ratings if a fuel-matching method is used.
