The mystery behind the manifold phenomena revealed with the use of advanced technologies

Engine Combustion Analysis

Source: Bosch

Engine design is a complex endeavor, with many factors affecting the combustion process.

With new measurement techniques, previously inaccessible information on the combustion processes from pre-ignition, to mixture formation to flame propagation can now be easily captured. The depth and breadth of these data would be useful in completing the understanding of the combustion process. Thereby, helping you to improve the performance and the efficiency of the engine.
