Combustion characteristics of an L-head engine combustion chamber have been examined using ionization probes and piezioelectric pressure transducers. The method describes how pressure rise rates, peak pressures, mean effective pressures, and flame arrival times were recorded. The flame arrival times were then used to find the position and shape of the flame front as a function of time. The influence of spark plug location on the above parameters was then examined for two different combustion chamber shapes.
