The good relationship between the spray condition in the intake manifold and the combustion characteristics is required. Firstly by this report it was tried the visualization and observation of spray of gasoline injection. It was mainly photographed when injection just began and the spray impinged on a intake valve. The photographs of fuel spray were taken by a image converter type high speed camera.
The characteristics of the fuel spray injected in early injection period is influenced with fuel pressure and flow rate of fuel. The atomizing phenomenon of tip fuel of spray could be visualized. The atomizing process in early injection period are differ from that in stady-state spray. And the picture of spray at impingement on the intake valve was shown too. The atomizing condition on the valve surface could be observed visually.
