To obtain a mixture of acetylene and turpentine oil in DI CI engine

Sharma, Nittin (2010) To obtain a mixture of acetylene and turpentine oil in DI CI engine. BTech thesis.



With modernization and increase in the number of automobiles world wide, the consumption of diesel and gasoline has enormously increased. As petroleum is non renewable source of energy and the petroleum reserves are scarce nowadays, there is a
need to search for alternative fuels for automobiles. Work has been done in using a lot of biofuels, the fuels obtained from plant to be used in IC engines which have an even added advantage of lower emissions compared to that of diesel and gasoline. Turpentine oil has been used in direct injection CI engine as an alternate fuel has similar properties as that of diesel. Acetylene is also a very good alternate fuel. In the present work, a mixture of acetylene and turpentine oil is obtained (as both of them are good alternative fuels) to be used in CI engine. The mixture is optimized such that it gives a thermal efficiency of 30% in a diesel engine at different loaded conditions. Thereafter, the properties of the mixture obtained are studied and represented in a graphical form.
