Experimental Investigation of the Effect of Biodiesel Blends on a DI Diesel Engine ’ s Injection and Combustion

  title={Experimental Investigation of the Effect of Biodiesel Blends on a DI Diesel Engine ’ s Injection and Combustion},
  author={Dimitrios N Tziourtzioumis and A. M. Stamatelos},
Differences in the evolution of combustion in a single cylinder, DI (direct injection) diesel engine fuelled by B20 were observed upon processing of the respective indicator diagrams. Aiming to further investigate the effects of biodiesel on the engine injection and combustion process, the injection characteristics of B0, B20, B40, B60, B80 and B100 were measured at low injection pressure and visualized at low and standard injection pressures. The fuel atomization characteristics were… CONTINUE READING
