Paper Abstract

Photography techniques past and present, are briefly reviewed. The advantages and limitations of side valve and over-head valve engines for combustion research are discussed. The paper presents a method by which high speed photographs of the combustion process are analysed to obtain flame speeds and rates of combustion. Results obtained using a side valve engine are presented.
