We used gradient thermometry to determine local heat transfer coefficients on the fire deck surface. We studied two modes of engine operation, that is, motored and fired. We show that the heat transfer coefficient distribution over the fire deck surface is inhomogeneous. Our investigation results may be used to validate existing models of heat transfer in a combustion chamber
