  1. 1. The effects of long chain alcohol blends on engine performance and spray characteristics in CI engines

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Josefine Preuss; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; spray characteristics; RME; drop-in bränslen; long chain alcohols; CI engine; HVO;

    Abstract : Replacing fossil fuels with alternatives derived from renewable sources is one way of meeting society’s increasing need for mobility while also significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles with internal combustion engines. To facilitate such a replacement, this thesis presents optical spray studies and engine experiments conducted to evaluate the potential of blends of biomass-derived alcohols and vegetable oils to serve as drop-in fuels for compression ignition engines.
