Evaluation of ethanol substitution in a compression ignition engine
MetadataShow full item record
Heavy duty compression ignition engines rely on advanced emission control strategies to mitigate regulated emissions in compliance with requirements set by the Environmental Protection Agency. These strategies add significant cost and complexity to engine design. Previous work identified that a diesel-ethanol dual fuel combustion technique may be able to reduce diesel fuel consumption and supplement current emission control methods. The substitution of diesel fuel with a renewable, U.S. based fuel such as corn ethanol would also improve US energy security. A review of diesel-ethanol dual fuel ...
