Abstract:

Tests were made on a supercharged CFR engine to determine surface-ignition temperature as a function of fuel-air ratio, intake-manifold pressure, and surface-ignition advance for four fuels - S-3 reference fuel, benzene, methanol, and AN-F-28, Ammendment-2, fuel. Range of surface-ignition temperatures was between 1900 and 2600 deg F. Because the difference in temperatures was very small, it was concluded that surface-ignition temperature is not a satisfactory criterion for differentiating between ignition characteristics of different fuels in internal-combustion engines.
