Knock Reduction of Spark-Ignition Engines by EGR 860034

In order to reduce the knock of spark-ignition engines in the heavy load region, the effects of EGR on engine performance were investigated on two engines, one with a turbocharger and the other naturally aspirated with a high compression ratio.
It was found that EGR was effective not only for reducing the knock, but also for improving the brake specific fuel consumption compared with the ignition timing retarding system.
