Abstract

A model is presented for the turbulent flame propagation speed in spark ignition engines based upon the analogy between molecular and turbulent transport processes. The turbulent flame speed is related to the trapped conditions, residual turbulence at trapping and the engine mean piston speed. This is a general model which has the intrinsic benefit of being a physical representation of the effect of turbulence levels on the combustion process.
