A Pulsed-Illumination, Closed-Circuit Television System for Real-Time Viewing of Engine Combustion and Observed Cyclic Variations 790093
A closed-circuit television technique has been developed for the real time viewing and recording of combustion and related processes in internal combustion engines. The technique has been applied to a transparent piston, transparent head engine, and shadowgraphs of combustion chamber events have been observed and recorded. The technique is particularly suited for the study of changes in the combustion process due to variations of engine parameters such as mixture ratio, load, speed, spark timing, injection initiation, etc., since the changes can be observed and recorded at the same time that they occur. A brief and qualitative study of flame and pressure cyclic variations is reported and discussed as an example of an application for which the television technique is particularly suited.
