Flame speed is an important aspect of fuel combustion characteristics. It affects combustion system design and performance. In this study, a laboratory experimental rig has been built to investigate the effect of equivalence ratio of gasoline-air mixture in a centrally ignited constant volume combustion chamber on flame speed at an initial pressure of 1bar and an initial temperature of 483 K using high speed flame photography technique. The results of the outwardly expanding spherical flame showed that the flame speed depends on both equivalence ratio and flame radius. It decreases slightly with the increase of flame radius and increases with the equivalence ratio until slightly larger than stiochiometric and then decreases. The flame speed reached 1.45 m/s at Φ= 0.8, (1.6) m/s at Φ= 1 and 1.27 m/s at Φ= 1.5

Keywords: Flame speed, gasoline fuel, spherical Flame, high speed photography
