Abstract: Karanja oil is very popular biodiesel used in CI engines in India. Among various biodiesels used, 10% Karanja oil is widely used when compared with rest of other biodiesels like Jatropha, Soybean oil. The combustion experiments were conducted in Mahindra 575DI engine, during experiment combustion vibrations are analyzed at different loads in percentage during ploughing action. It is found that the vibrations are generated due to combustion of biodiesel at different loads. The biodiesels are used in different blends such as B10, B20, B50 and B100. The changes in vibration level were observed during each load for different blends. The changes in vibrations are compared with diesel oil. The vibration result values observed in diesel oil is more than other blends. It is also observed that by increasing the blending rate the change in vibration value is found decreasing. It is concluded that the performance of CI engines from the vibration point of view is improved with biodiesel with diesel.
