Experimental investigation on compression ignition engine powered by preheated neat jatropha oil

  In the present study, the high viscosity of the jatropha curcas oil was decreased by preheating. The effect of fuel inlet temperature on performance of diesel engine is evaluated. A single cylinder, four stroke, constant speed, air cooled, direct injection diesel engine developing a power output of 3.7 kW at 1500 rev/min  typically used in agricultural sector was tested using neat jatropha oil as fuel....

Experimental and theoretical evaluation of the performance parameters and emission characteristics of bio diesel using C.I engine for various injection pressure

  Cost and limited reserves of conventional fossil fuels have intensified the search for alternative fuels for use in internal combustion engines. A possible alternative engine fuel is vegetable oil because it is a clean burning, renewable, non-toxic, biodegradable and environmentally friendly transportation fuel. It can be used in a neat form without any modification of the engine. Vegetable oils are produced...
