Abstract
IN ORDER TO QUANTITATIVELY IDENTIFY THE CONTRIBUTION OF SEVERAL CRITICAL FUEL PROPERTIES TO IGNITION, COMBUSTION AND SUBSEQUENT ENGINE PERFORMANCE OF ALTERNATE DIESEL FUELS, AND EMPIRICAL MATHEMATICAL MODELING INVESTIGATION IS PROPOSED. THE PERFORMANCE OF A WIDE VARIETY OF ALTERNATE HYDROCARBON DIESEL FUELS IN A DETROIT DIESEL SERIES 53 ENGINE WILL BE EVALUATED. WILL INCLUDED IGNITION QUALITY, DENSITY, VISCOSITY, VOLATILITY AND CHEMICAL COMPOSITION. THESE FUEL PROPERTIES WILL BE MODELED TO GENERATE A PREDICTIVE CORRELATION OF BRAKE HORSEPOWER AND SPECIFIC CONSUMPTION PERFORMANCE.
