Abstract: Complete and clean combustion is always desirable for better performance of engine and less emissions. An experimental work is carried in constant volume combustion chamber for getting conditions like diesel engine combustion to study the ignition delay characteristics of diesel engine combustion by varying combustion chamber air pressure. In this experimental work, air pressure of combustion chamber varied from 10 to 25 bar, hot surface temperature inside the combustion chamber varied from 350°C to 550°C and fuel injection pressures varied from 100 to 200 bar for hollow cone spray and solid cone spray . For this work a set-up is made in which the flame detection is done by digital storage oscilloscope using an optical method. The findings of the work suggests that combustion chamber air pressure and injection pressure are significantly varies the values of ignition delay at a particular hot surface temperature. It is also find that on increasing the values of combustion chamber air pressure and injection pressure, ignition delay values are decreases although the variation in ignition delay is less at higher injection pressure and combustion chamber air pressure.
