About the book
The book to be edited will focus on Diesel engines to analyze the combustion, performance, and emission characteristics. Modeling and simulation, experiments, additive in various mass fractions, and original work of contribution will be assessed. At the core of diesel engines, performance analysis is the efficiency of combustion and quality of exhaust emissions. These are related to air utilization and fuel economy. Many factors affect engine combustion efficiency, which can individually and collectively affect the quality of exhaust emissions. Diesel engine emissions are the factors that promote the generation of regulated variables that include soot, which along with other adsorbed particles like condensates of unburnt hydrocarbon and its intermediates, is generally called particulate matter (PM); oxides of nitrogen (NOx), and carbon monoxide (CO). Their emissions into the atmospheric environment have an impact on human health and are therefore regulated in the concentrations they could be emitted from modern engines.
Diesel has a High Energy Density: Diesel engines are highly fuel-efficient, for one, because on a volume scale — gallon, liter, square foot, or meter — diesel has a much higher energy density than most other solid, liquid, and gas-state fossil fuels. Diesel certainly has a higher energy density than gasoline, natural gas (methane), and propane.
Diesel has a High Energy Density: Higher energy density means there is more energy per volume unit of measure — more energy per liter. Diesel has a higher energy density than other fossil fuels because the hydrocarbons in diesel — the valuable components in every fossil fuel that ignites/burns/combusts — are made of long and complex molecules, molecules with very high carbon-to-hydrogen ratios.
Diesel naturally has exceptional compressive resistance because it is a heavy fuel, stable fuel made of large, long hydrocarbon molecules.
Diesel has High Compression Resistance: Diesel is highly efficient with respect to fuel efficiency is because it is a very heavy fossil fuel. Thus diesel is a very stable fuel. The stability of diesel is the reason diesel engines with high compression ratios are possible. Compression ratio plays into both fuel efficiency and emissions. The compression ratio is particularly important with respect to reducing emissions. The higher the compression ratio, the lower the emissions are.
Diesel Engines are More Thermal Efficient than Other Fossil Fuel Engines: Diesel engines are more efficient than any other liquid fossil fuel engine in that of thermal efficiency. Thermal efficiency is the total amount of energy generated by an engine’s combustion of fuel that becomes mechanical energy, an energy that pushes a vehicle down the road. The thermal efficiency of diesel engines is far greater than that of any other type of liquid fossil fuel engine.
Diesel Engines are More Thermal Efficient than Other Fossil Fuel Engines: The thermal efficiency of diesel engines is partly due to the energy density and compression resistance of diesel fuel.
