Experimental evidence is given which indicates that wall-quenching of the combustion reaction occurs in an internal combustion engine. The apparent quench distances observed are in agreement with the quench distances calculated from burner data at approximately the same pressures and temperatures. In addition, the observed quench distances are of the right order of magnitude to account for the unburned hydrocarbons found in the exhaust gas of automobiles operated in the range of full throttle and road load. © 1957 Combustion Institute.
