Alternative fuels in automotive engines are being explored to address logistic, economics, and environmental goals. These fuels encompass solids, liquids and gases. SP-900 contains a wide range of information dealing with both the compression-ignition and spark- ignition engines. Partial contents include: modeling of the natural gas injection process in a two-stroke diesel engine; comparative analysis of the exhaust emissions for vegetable oil based alternative fuels; evaluation of a passenger car equipped with a direct injection neat methanol engine; physical properties of emulsion fuel (water/oil- type) and its effect on engine performance under transient operation; improved atomization of methanol for low-temperature starting in spark-ignition engines; research and development of LNG vehicle for practical use; and a comparison between the combustion of isooctane, methanol, and methane in pulse flame combustors with closed loop A/F control.
