Knock prediction with reduced reaction analysis

Knackprediktion med hjälp av reducerad raktionsanalys (Swedish)
In the report a model using a reduced reaction analysis has been used to see if it is possible to predict knock. The model is based on n-heptane combustion, but it is used for iso-octane. The model was supposed to be able to adapt to different fuels, but it is shown to be unable to do so. Further, the model has been compared to an existing method for predicting knock, known as knock index, to see if any improvements could be made. When comparing the model to the knock index, it has shown that no big advantages can be found using the new model. It is more time consuming and is not able to work with simulated input, instead of measured. It can however predict if knock occurs with a good reliability, but compared to the knock index it is not an improvement.
