[28] concluded that the most accident on ship happen when the flammable substances reaches its autoignition temperature by contact with a hot surface, the autoignition temperature of selected working fluids (560[degrees]C for benzene, 553[degrees]C for toluene) is higher than maximum temperature of the fluid in the ORC presented in this paper.
Since oil typically has a high cetane number and its autoignition temperature is much lower than that of gasoline, the preignition of mixtures with oil in the late compression stroke occurs before spark ignition timing, inducing superknock.
