Potential for Using a Tyre Pyrolysis Oil-Biodiesel Blend in a Diesel Engine at Different Compression Ratios, Abhishek Sharma and S Murugan, Department of Mechanical Engineering

T
his study is aimed at investigating effects of varying the compression ratio at optimum injection timing and injection pressure on the behaviour of adiesel engine, using a non-petroleum fuel, i.e. a blend of 80% biodiesel, and 20% oil obtained from pyrolysis of waste tyres.The increase in the compression ratio from
17.5 to 18.5 for the blend improved the brake thermal efficiency by about 8% compared to that of the original compression ratio at full load. The experimental results indicated that for the blend at a higher compression ratio of 18.5, the brake specific carbon monoxide, brake specific hydrocarbon emissions and smoke opacity were reduced by about 10.5%, 32%, and 17.4% respectively, with respect to those of the original compression ratio at full load.
