Knock Occurrence Criterion
The transition to knock in SI engines does not only depend on the temperature and pressure in the end-gas . The correct prediction of local auto-ignition is not sufficient for the reliable calculation of the knock boundary, as the occurrence of this phenomenon does not necessarily result in knock  . To this end, an additional criterion for occurrence of knock resulting from the predicted auto-ignition is needed, which defines the main task in this chapter.
