Thermal investigations on a high-speed direct injection diesel engine

Abstract:

Modern compression ignition engines offer higher thermal efficiency compared to gasoline engines, thus offering superior fuel consumption performance and lower CO2 emissions, a major greenhouse gas. With future legislation pushing the automotive manufacturers for even lower fleet average CO2 emissions the compression ignition engine can assist in achieving these goals, however further research is required to extend their efficiency.

Understanding where the chem...
