I wish. I'm sorry. All the stuff I have seen are in hard form, and were dated back to WWII, when they experimented with stuff like turbosupercharging and water injection for airplane engines.

All the research I have seen shows variations in flame
front expansion under various conditions; some rough
parameters came from that research regarding
detonation, but it was old research.
I would be very interested in seeing anything from the
1960s and later in the way of SAE or other
"journal"-level research on the matter of flame front
propagation, particularly with regard to mixture
homogeneity and composition. Can you point me toward
some SAE docs or the like?
