Abstract:
Two-dimensional Mie and LIEF techniques were applied to investigate the spray propagation, mixture formation and charge distribution at ignition time inside the combustion chamber of a direct injection SI engine. The results obtained provide the propagation of liquid fuel relative to the piston motion and visualize the charge distribution (liquid fuel and fuel vapor) throughout the engine process. Special emphasis was laid on the charge distribution at ignition time for stratified charge operation. By means of a LIEF technique it was possible to measure cyclic fluctuations in the fuel vapor distributions which explain the occurrence of misfiring.
