I thought this was kinda neat as you can watch what actually happens as an engine is running. It's in very slow motion.

I think it is cool seeing and definitely neat seeing the air and fuel mixture entering the cylinder. The only thing I wish it would show is how violent the explosion actually is in the cylinder. With the video being slowed down that much it is probably impossible to demonstrate. I wonder what kind of camera they used that it didn't destroy the lens.

Several years ago, I was at the Jacktown old-engine show, and there were 3 or 4 "research" engines (single cylinder) there which had a clear glass cylinder, in which the piston travelled.

 

As best as I was able to learn, this style of engine was used to study flame propagation in the cylinder to evaluate octane levels.  ....I may be mistaken, but I think some of these also had variable compression ratios, as well.

 

I only saw those engines one time, as I never saw them again at later shows.

Wow! guess you can see the fuel doesn't go all at once in this pix.  AND, seems like flames hang around the intake valve quite awhile! Suprised at that.  Maybe it leaks some there?  Hard to believe all this hardware could move and up/down and such at speeds they reach and stay together.  I think it's really just "Magic" and not mechanics, ha!
