Thermodynamic Simulation and Experimental Tests of Diesel Engine Using Different Blends of Diesel Oil and Biodiesel

C.R. Pereira Belchior, G.C. De Souza Junior & J.P. Vargas Machuca Bueno
In the present energy scenario, there is an increase in blends of diesel oil and biodiesel research as alternative fuels for internal combustion engines. In Brazil, the soy bean and the palm oil biodiesels are been produced for this purpose. When those fuel blends are used as a substitute for diesel oil, it's highly essential to understand the parameters that affect the operational phases of the engine and results in performance modification and emissions. The...
