Abstract

Modifications have been made to the injection system of the engine used for cetane-rating diesel fuels. These involved the replacement of the standard pintle nozzle with a single-hole orifice-type nozzle. The aim of the modifications was to improve the combustion process and thereby increase the precision of the cetane-rating test. The modifications to the injection system have been assessed using heat release analysis, exhaust emission measurements and high-speed photography of the combustion flames.
