Effect of additives on laser ignition and compression ignition of methane and hydrocarbons in a rapid compression machine
Despite recent efforts to develop new energy systems that do not rely on combustion of fossil fuels, internal combustion (IC) engines powered on fossil fuels (i.e. gasoline, diesel or natural gas) will remain as an integral component of the global energy portfolio for years to come and increasing the efficiency of IC engines will be a necessary means to reduce fossil fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. In this study, the effect of fuel additives on natural gas and gasoline spark ignited engines were investigated using laser ignition and compression ignition experiments performed in a ...
