PERFORMANCE AND EMISSION CHARACTERISTICS OF CI ENGINE USING SIMAROUBA BIODIESEL WITH SC5D ADDITIVE
Improvement of fuel properties are essential for suppression of diesel pollutant emissions. Vegetable oil sare also a very hopeful alternate fuel for diesel engines because they are renewable, clean burning and have properties analogous to that of diesel. Experimental investigation has been carried out on the performance and emission characteristics of CI engine using Simarouba oil and its blends with SC5D Additive. Tests are conducted on single cylinder four stroke water cooled compression ignition engine to evaluate the feasibility of blends of Simarouba oil with SC5D Additive. It is evident from the experiment that additive will improve the thermal efficiency of the engine and also it influences one mission characteristics.
