An Experimental Determination of the Instantaneous Potential Radiant Heat Transfer Within an Operating Diesel Engine 720022

An instrument was developed to measure absolute monochromatic infrared emission rates within an operating diesel engine. The instrument and data reduction system were developed for use in obtaining potential instantaneous rates of radiant heat transfer within an operating engine. Data are presented for variations of: engine speed, fuel-air ratio, fuel injection timing, intake air pressure, fuel injector nozzle spray patterns, fuel cetane numbers, fuel family, and fuel additives (tetraeythl lead and amyl nitrate).
Also presented is an empirical correlation for instantaneous radiant heat transfer rates and some conclusions regarding radiant emission sources within the engine and their relationships to combustion processes.
