The fact that detonation, or knocking, in an internal combustion engine is a function of many related and unrelated variables has caused considerable difficulty in the field of detonation research end engine design. To date, the practice has been to study the effect of these variables one at a time, endeavoring to hold all other variables constant. The purpose of this investigation is to hold all variables constant except the valve overlap and to thereby determine the detonation-limited characteristics of this variable alone.
