Demonstration of Two-Dimensional Temperature Characterization of Valves and Transparent Piston in a Gdi Optical Engine

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift


Thermographic phosphors thermometry was used to measure engine valves and transparent piston temperatures in two dimensions as well point wise of a running, optically accessible, gasoline direct injection engine. The engine, fueled with isooctane, was operated in continuous and skip-fire mode at 1200 and 2000 rpm. A calibration of the phosphorescence lifetime and spectral properties against temperature allowed temperature measurements between 25 and 600mDC. Results from the measurements show the potential of the technique for two-dimensional mapping of engine walls, valves and piston temperatures inside the cylinder.
