  1. 1. DME Combustion in Heavy Duty Diesel Engines

    Author : Henrik Salsing; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : combustion; heavy duty; DME; dimethyl ether; Diesel engine;

    Abstract : Interest in alternative energy and fuels has grown considerably in recent years due to increasing concern about the adverse effects of global warming, the limited sources of non-renewable feedstocks, the insecurity of their supply and associated fluctuations in their prices. However, although there is an urgent, and widely recognized, need to address these issues, selecting suitable candidate feedstocks and fuels is far from straightforward, since numerous factors must be considered when selecting promising candidates for further evaluation and, ultimately, commercial use.

  2. 2. A Combustion Concept for Future Heavy-Duty Diesel Engines

    Author : Tobias Husberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Diesel combustion; Common rail; Diesel engines; Multiple injections; Combustion concept; Heavy-duty;

    Abstract : The Diesel engine has been intensively developed by manufacturers and researchers since 1892, when it was invented. However, the direction of its development has shifted in recent years.Environmental issues are becoming increasingly important in our society, prompting more efforts to be put into making the engines cleaner.

  3. 3. Low Temperature Combustion in a Heavy Duty Diesel Engine

    Author : Malin Ehleskog; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : LIVC; heavy duty; VVA; Diesel engine; Combustion; soot; EIVC; NOx; LTC;

    Abstract : In recent years, there have been major efforts to reduce engine emissions and fuel consumption. The studies described in this thesis were conducted with the aim of identifying methods for reducing harmful engine-out emissions of soot and nitrogen oxides (NOx) under high load without increasing fuel consumption.

    Abstract : Catalytic emission control is used to reduce the negative impact of pollutants from diesel exhausts on our health and on the environment. For a heavy-duty truck, such a system consists of a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), a diesel particulate filter (DPF), a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalyst, and an ammonia slip catalyst (ASC).

  5. 5. Waste Heat Recovery in Heavy Duty Diesel Engines

    Author : Jelmer Johannes Rijpkema; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Organic Flash Cycle; Heavy Duty Diesel Engine; Organic Rankine Cycle; Trilateral Flash Cycle; Transcritical Rankine Cycle; Internal Combustion Engines; Waste Heat Recovery;

    Abstract : Over 50% of the energy released by burning fuel in a truck engine is lost as heat rather than being used to propel the vehicle. A promising method for capturing and reusing this heat, and thereby improving engine efficiency, is to exploit thermodynamic cycles for waste heat recovery (WHR). READ MORE
