Combustion measurement analysis in research and development

Combustion measurement analysis technology from Kistler – precise, cost-effective solutions for research and development

The key measurand in combustion engine development is cylinder pressure as a function of crank angle: the basis for detailed analysis of the combustion, air path and gas exchange processes. Combustion measurement analysis in research and development is the fundamental factor in optimizing engine parameters, and optical investigations allow even more accurate analysis of processes in the combustion chamber. The outcomes: enhanced efficiency and power, improved comfort, and lower emissions. When it comes to combustion measurement analysis in research and development, professionals throughout the world choose solutions from Kistler for in-cylinder and gas exchange sensor technology.
