Published 2019-11-21 by SAE International in United States
Accumulation of ash in the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) with engine operating over the time is a major concern for all vehicle manufacturers, with BS VI and BS VII emission norms mandating the use of DPF. Ash deposition leads to increase in pressure drop across the filter and more frequent regeneration pattern, which can lead to sintering. It can hamper the capacity of soot loading, properties of DPF substrate material and can lower catalyst activity in case of Catalysed-DPF. Hence, removal of ash is important by defining the DPF cleaning methods. Primary source of ash is lubricant oil, taking part in the combustion. Lubricant additives like detergents and anti-wear agents are responsible for formation of metallic ash inside the DPF. Secondary source of metallic ash is fuel and engine wear out. The present paper elucidates the preparation of DPF samples including coating and canning of DPF substrates, with proper GBD. Pressure drop and weight with and without coating is estimated and validated through actual measurement of fresh as well as soot loaded samples. Soot loading…

Hydrogen has low ignition energy ensures easy ignition of the ultra-lean mixture of H2+air also. The flame speed of hydrogen is about five times higher than methane and gasoline which allows hydrogen fuelled IC engines to have relatively reduced cyclic variations than that of with methane and gasoline. High flame speed also helps to make the combustion closer to constant volume which enhances the thermal efficiency of hydrogen fuelled IC engine. High octane number of hydrogen makes it suitable for its application in Spark ignition (SI) engines. Since the hydrogen combustion in spark ignition engine generates water which can interfere with the lubricant performance, different lubricant is to be developed for this purpose. In this background, the present work is aimed at the development of dedicated lubricant for hydrogen fuelled SI engine. This paper presents the various parameters required for evaluating different lubricants for hydrogen fuelled genset. Existing CNG genset has been converted into hydrogen genset with modification in intake manifold assembly, engine hardware system, ECU modification with adequate modification in exhaust system.

The urgency to reduce pollutant emissions from the combustion of neat diesel has led to the production, especially from waste substances, of various types of alternative fuels and new methods of analysis that sustain their use. The study of the heat absorption properties of different fuel blends, from recycled edible and lubricant oils, allows to identify the type and concentration of the fuel blend, which allows taking advantage of the generated heat from the air compression stroke of an internal combustion engine, increasing the temperature in the combustion chamber volume and giving the possibility to accelerate the chemical reaction during the combustion process. By means of spectral analysis in the visible and near-ultraviolet range of electromagnetic radiation, it measured the absorption capacity of heat energy of different concentrations and types of fuel blends from vegetable-animal and mineral-synthetic sources. It was observed that the fuel blends from the synthetic and mineral base are the ones which absorb more heat energy compared with the blend of animal-vegetable base and diesel. With the present study it is possible…

Development of a Measuring System for the Visualization of the Oil Film between the Piston and Cylinder Liner of a Gasoline Engine

SAE International Journal of Engines

Published 2019-11-14 by SAE International in United States
The design of cylinder liners, pistons, and piston rings is subject to different conflicting goals. In addition to a loss-free seal of the combustion chamber, sufficient oil must be present between the friction partners. Both the reduction of piston assembly friction and the minimization of oil consumption are crucial to achieve the strictly defined CO2 and emission standards. To master this challenge and find the best compromise requires a lot of system-specific know-how. The automobile and engine manufacturers focus mainly on friction-reducing measures, which are analyzed with different measuring methods such as the floating-liner method, the strip-down method, or the instantaneous indicated mean effective pressure (IMEP) method. However, the interpretation of the results and the development of realistic simulation models lacks information about the oil film behavior and the film thickness. In order to gain this missing knowledge, instruments for oil film visualization and oil film thickness measurement have to be developed. In this study, the two-dimensional laser-induced fluorescence method (2D-LIF) is used to visualize the lubricating oil film between the piston and the cylinder…

A Comparative Tribological Performance of Lubricating Oils with Zinc Dialkyl Dithiophosphate and Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles as Additives

Archit Bimal Shah, Karan Kothari
Vellore Institute of Technology-Anil Payyappalli Mana
Published 2019-10-11 by SAE International in United States
The present work compares the tribological properties of ZnO (Zinc Oxide) nanoparticle based lubricant with ZDDP (zinc dialkyl dithiophosphate) based lubricant. The nanolubricant was prepared by mixing the nanoparticles in base oil followed by ultrasonification and ZDDP based lubricant was prepared by mixing ZDDP and stirring with base oil. Base oil used was mineral base oil. Both the lubricants were tested at three different temperatures, loads and roughness values. The test was carried out on AISI 52100 steel samples prepared by wire cutting and were grinded to three different levels of surface roughness. Friction and wear tests were performed using a reciprocating sliding tribo-tester at three different loads and temperatures. Taguchi orthogonal array was used to reduce the number of experiments. SEM, EDS and AFM analysis were carried out to study the surface wear phenomenon. The coefficient of friction was found to be low in the case of ZnO nanolubricant but wear was found to be high compared to ZDDP based lubricant.

Emission and Tribological Studies on Nano CuO/Jatropha Methyl Ester/Synthetic Mineral Oil in a Two-Stroke Engine

Bannari Amman Institute of Technology-Anbalagan Ramakrishnan
Vellore Institute of Technology-Govindasamy Rajamurugan, Prabu Krishnasamy
Published 2019-10-11 by SAE International in United States
In lieu of the drastic growth of the vehicle population, there is a huge consumption of fossil fuels and mineral oils for mobility. This leads to depletion in fossil fuels and mineral oils which are the by-products of petroleum. These fossil fuels can’t sustain for a long period of time because of its toxicity. In order to reduce the usage of existing mineral oil for lubrication, a source of non-edible oil from Jatropha curcus is processed as jatropha methyl ester (JME). It is holding high viscosity, density and easy blend with base oil. In this current work, the wear resistance of the lubricating oil is enhanced by the addition of nano-copper oxide particle blend with the base oil. The emission performance and tribological behavior have been experimentally tested in 98.2CC two-stroke air cooled engine. The 20% of JME blend with CuO nano particle provides better emission performance and wear characteristics than the other combination of blends.

Fuel-Lubricant Interactions on the Propensity for Stochastic Pre-Ignition

Driven Racing Oil-Lake Speed
National Renewable Energy Laboratory-Bradley Zigler, Jon Luecke
Published 2019-09-09 by SAE International in United States
This work explores the impact of the interaction of lubricant and fuel properties on the propensity for stochastic pre-ignition (SPI). Findings are based on statistically significant changes in SPI tendency and magnitude, as determined by measurements of cylinder pressure. Specifically, lubricant detergents, lubricant volatility, fuel volatility, fuel chemical composition, fuel-wall impingement, and engine load were varied to study the physical and chemical effects of fuel-lubricant interactions on SPI tendency. The work illustrates that at low loads, with fuels susceptible to SPI events, lubricant detergent package effects on SPI were non-significant. However, with changes to fuel distillation, fuel-wall impingement, and most importantly engine load, lubricant detergent effects could be observed even at reduced loads This suggests that there is a thermal effect associated with the higher load operation. It was hypothesized that the thermal effect was associated with lube oil nitrogenation. To test this theory, nitromethane (CH3NO2) was blended at 6.5% by volume CH3NO2 resulted in significant sensitivity to lubricant additive package effect on SPI, even at reduced loads where no lubricant sensitivity was observed without…
