Effects of engine knocking range from inconsequential to completely destructive. It should not be confused with pre-ignition (or preignition), as they are two separate events.
Typical Passanger Car- 75-85% at sea level.
Hemi motors and multi valve heads can achieve 100%
Break Mean Effective Pressure: (B.M.E.P) The average downward pressure from the combustion of Air/Fuel on top of the piston.
Density: The density of a material is defined as its mass per unit volume.
Mass: Mass, the amount of matter in an object to which its weight is proportional
Energy: Energy is a physical quantity that describes the amount of work that can be performed by a force.
Kinetic Energy: The kinetic energy of an object of mass m traveling at a speed v is mv2/2, provided v is much less than the speed of light.
Static Compression Ratio: Physicly messureing the volume of thecomponants of the combustion chamber. ( Cylinder head, head gasket, piston to deck.
Compression Ratio: In a piston engine it is the ratio between the volume of the cylinder and combustion chamber when the piston is at the bottom of its stroke, and the volume of the combustion chamber when the piston is at the top of its stroke
Flight Time= The time it takes to travel thru the engine. Moleculer Level, air CFM.
Stiochometric= Air fuel ratio for gasoline is the exact Air/Fuel ratio to completely Combused all the fuel to H2O and CO2.
* Gasoline= 14.7:1
* Ethonal= 9:1
* Methonal=6.45:1
Fuels produce energy by the breaking and forming of chemical bonds to build more stable products, The chemical formula for fuel is C8H18 and oxygen is O2 once burned breaks down to H2O and CO2.
The more dense the mixture and the more tightly compacted the homogenized the Air/Fuel mixture the more effective and powerful the expanding flame front will be.
Knocking (also called knock, detonation, spark knock, pinging or pinking) in spark-ignition internal combustion engines occurs when combustion of the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder starts off correctly in response to ignition by the spark plug, but one or more pockets of air/fuel mixture explode outside the envelope of the normal combustion front. The fuel-air charge is meant to be ignited by the spark plug only, and at a precise time in the piston's stroke cycle. The peak of the combustion process no longer occurs at the optimum moment for the four-stroke cycle. The shock wave creates the characteristic metallic "pinging" sound, and cylinder pressure increases dramatically. Effects of engine knocking range from inconsequential to completely destructive. It should not be confused with pre-ignition (or preignition), as they are two separate events.
Pre-ignition (or preignition) in a spark-ignition engine is a technically different phenomenon from engine knocking, and describes the event wherein the air/fuel mixture in the cylinder ignites before the spark plug fires. Pre-ignition is initiated by an ignition source other...
