Figure 4 shows a comparison between the crank angles of knock onset (mixture auto-ignition) simulated with the detailed reaction kinetics mechanism at in-cylinder conditions and those predicted by a knock integral, equation (3), at various boundary conditions.
The results show that the most effective parameter is temperature, however, the concentration of the leaching agent, liquid to solid proportion, rate of stirring and sample particle size also affect the leaching reaction kinetics.
