Spray and Combustion Characteristics of Biodiesel Blends in CI Engine

Authors(1) :-Dr. R. Ramachandra

This experimental evaluation of spray and combustion characteristics of six different biodiesels in a constant chamber using a not unusualrail injection device. The strategies of atomization and flame traits have been visualized by the use of a excessive digital camera under two distinctive injection pressures. The stress modifications have been measured by means of a piezometer strain sensor, and combustion procedures have been analyzed via computing warmness release fees. From those outcomes, it turned into concluded that exceedingly pressurized injection expanded atomization of fuels and prompted to shorten ignition put off period and for that reason stepped forward average combustion characteristics. in particular, the oxygen contents protected in biodiesel expanded combustion situations. Moreover, these quantitative and reliable information of biodiesel fuels which might be beneficial in supporting their applicability and setting up emission reduction degree in destiny as nicely.
