heal.abstract During the last years a great effort has been made to reduce pollutant emissions from direct injection (131) diesel engines. Towards this, engineers have proposed various solutions, one of which is the use of gaseous fuels as a supplement for liquid diesel fuel. These engines, which use conventional diesel fuel and gaseous fuel, are referred to as dual fuel engines. The main aspiration from the usage of dual fuel (liquid and gaseous one) combustion systems is mainly to reduce particulate emissions and nitrogen oxides. One of the gaseous fuels used is natural gas, which has a relatively high auto ignition temperature and moreover is an economical and clean burning fuel. The high auto ignition temperature of natural gas is a serious advantage against other gaseous fuels since the compression ratio of most conventional DI diesel engines can be maintained. Moreover the combustion of natural gas produces practically no particulates since natural gas contains less dissolved impurities (e.g. sulfur compounds). The present contribution is mainly concerned, with an experimental investigation of the characteristics of dual fuel operation when liquid diesel is partially replaced with natural gas under ambient intake temperature in a DI diesel engine. Results are given revealing the effect of liquid fuel percentage replacement by natural gas on engine performance and emissions. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved. en
