Abstract: The use of a rapid compression and expansion machine (RCEM) provides the possibility of investigating the fundamental kinetic behavior of combustion. The aim of this work is the investigation of the influence of temperature inhomogeneities on the reaction kinetics of knocking combustion under well-known conditions without having random fluctuations. In the RCEM a clearly defined temperature distribution was generated that covers a large area and facilitates the investigation of the influence of a temperature …
