Abstract: An experimental work is performed in a constant volume combustion chamber to study the effect of varying hot surface temperature on ignition delay characteristics for different fuel sprays (Hollow cone spray and Solid cone spray). For ejecting the sprays pintle and single hole nozzles were used. In this experimental work hot surface temperature (HST) varied from 350°C to 550°C, air pressure inside the cylinder varied from 10 to 25 bar while fuel injection pressures varied from 10 to 20 MPa. Optical method is used for detecting the flame appearance while a digital Oscilloscope is used to measure ID of sprays by recording the gap between injection event and the event of appearance of flame. During the work it is found that ID is strong function of HST rather than other operating parameters. It is also found that on increasing HST, for both sprays ignition delay is decreasing at every injection pressures.
