THE ADAPTABLE DIESEL ENGINE-NEW DEVELOPMENTS AIMING AT MAXIMUM FUEL ECONOMY
The fuel shortage and the coincidental deterioration in fuel quality call for adaptable engines. Their economy should be very high over as broad a load range as possible. Moreover the engines should be optimally adaptable to the specific ambient conditions. As the new fuels have in part widely varying combustion characteristics the injection system itself must also be easily adjustable. Many engines are operated predominantly in the part load range. This must also be taken into account when designing the engine. The substantially differing types of propulsion in ships, as also in stationary applications, require a widely varied programme.
