  1. 1. Experimental Investigations on Natural Gas-Diesel Dual Fuel Combustion

    Author : Pablo Garcia; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dual Fuel; Diesel; Natural Gas; Pilot Injection; Combustion Efficiency; Methane; Nitrogen Oxides; Lean operation; Ignition;

    Abstract : Natural gas has been traditionally applied in spark-ignited combustion engines due to similar combustion characteristics for methane gas and gasoline. However, spark ignition requires a low compression ratio to avoid knock problems and therefore, gas engines have lower efficiency than diesel engines. READ MORE

  2. 2. Impacts of alternative combustion diluents and hydrogen addition on a swirl-stabilized flame related to gas turbine application

    Author : Mao Li; Kraftverksteknik; []
    Keywords : lean premixed combustion; Swirl-stabilized flame; Gas turbine combustion; Flame dilution; H2 addition; Lean blowout; CO emission; PVC; CH chemiluminescence; Inverse Abel transform; PIV; POD;

    Abstract : The global energy tendency leads to increasing attention on clean combustion technologies in order to eliminate adverse impacts on the environment. The utilization of oxyfuel combustion (CO2 acts as the only combustion dilution), flame diluents, and hydrogen fuel in gas turbine combustion provides a promising solution to reduce combustion pollutant emissions.

  3. 3. Productivity Improvements in Construction Transport Operation through Lean Thinking and Systems of Systems

    Author : David Rylander; Jakob Axelsson; Rauno Heikkilä; Mälardalens högskola; []

    Abstract : The purpose of a quarry is to extract rock material to deliver gravel and raw material to its customers. The products can be further processed to e.g., extract minerals such as iron or to produce cement and asphalt. READ MORE

  4. 4. Catalysis for Lean NOx Reduction - Aspects of Catalyst Synthesis and Surface Acidity

    Author : Hanna Härelind Ingelsten; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : lean NOx reduction; silica; alumina; FTIR; surface acidity; model catalysts; platinum; HZSM-5; w o microemulsion; aluminum-silicate; hydrocarbon;

    Abstract : From both economic and environmental perspectives it is desirable to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels. One route to increase the fuel efficiency for vehicles is operation in oxygen excess. However, a major problem with this technique is the lean environment, which obstructs catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxides (NOx) to harmless nitrogen. READ MORE

  5. 5. HCCI Combustion - Engine Operation and Emission Characteristics

    Author : Magnus Christensen; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Motorer; framdrivningssystem; Motors and propulsion systems; efficiency; emissions; combustion; HCCI; engine;

    Abstract : The potential and limitations of the Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition (HCCI) engine concept has been experimentally investigated. The operation range, in terms of usable air/fuel ratio and engine load, and the emission characteristics have been studied. An 1. READ MORE
