Paper Title:Development of Combustion Chambers for Enhanced Performance of Biodiesel Fueled Compression Ignition Engine


Alternative fuels are renewable in nature and deal with mainly about socio-economic and environmental issues. In view of this background, causes of combustion chamber geometry on the performance, combustion and emission characteristics has been examined in a single cylinder, four stroke water cooled direct injection (DI) compression ignition (CI) engine operated on single fuel mode using Honge oil methyl ester (HOME). Results of examination on HOME operation showed 2-3% increased brake thermal efficiency with condensed emission levels. However, more study and progress of technology should be dedicated to this area to further investigate the performance and feasibility of these fuels for dual fuel operation and prospect exploitations
