Abstract

The literature on processes taking place in the cylinder of an internal combustion engine is very rich, indeed, as should be expected of a topic bearing so incisively upon the automobile and oil industries that occupy today a most prominent economic sector in the world. This is manifested, of course, by the textbooks on piston engines1, as well as by classical monographs on combustion2.
