Abstract Understanding the detailed flame transport in IC engines is important to accurately predict ignition and combustion phasing, rate of heat release and assess engine performance. This is particularly important for RANS and LES engine simulations, which often struggle to accurately predict flame propagation and heat release without first adjusting model parameters. Detailed measurements of flame transport in technical systems are required to guide model development and validation. This… Expand
