The main aim of these experiments is to verify the results of numerical optimization described in , ,  and . The results of measuring the classical plunger with its drilled internal cavity and the optimized plunger with its sparked-out inner cavity and applied flow control body are presented in this article. The temperature distributions across both plunger surfaces are estimated by values measured at four points placed 5 millimetres under the plunger surfaces.
