Dual-Fuel Diesel Engines offers a detailed discussion of different types of dual-fuel diesel engines, the gaseous fuels they can use, and their operational practices. Reflecting cutting-edge advancements in this rapidly expanding field, this timely book: Explains the benefits and challenges associated with internal combustion, compression ignition, gas-fueled, and premixed dual-fuel engines Explores methane and natural gas as engine fuels, as well as liquefied petroleum gases, hydrogen, and other alternative fuels Examines safety considerations, combustion of fuel gases, and the conversion of diesel engines to dual-fuel operation Addresses dual-fuel engine combustion, performance, knock, exhaust emissions, operational features, and management Describes dual-fuel engine operation on alternative fuels and the predictive modeling of dual-fuel engine performance Dual-Fuel Diesel Engines covers a variety of engine sizes and areas of application, with an emphasis on the transportation sector. The book provides a state-of-the-art reference for engineering students, practicing engineers, and scientists alike.After the rapid success of the four-stroke liquid-fueled internal combustion engine , gas-fueled engines tended to be ... Others followed later with patents describing the operation of high-compression-ratio internal combustion engines that operate on both oil and a gaseous fuel. ... to utilize gaseous fuels for engine applications as supplies of liquid fuels of the right quality became increasingly scarce, anbsp;...
