PERFORMANCE OF COAL SLURRY FUEL IN A DIESEL ENGINE
Three slurry fuels containing different concentrations of coal were tested in a small-bore 4-cycle diesel engine equipped with modified injectors under various loads and speeds. Exhaust temperatures, smoke, blowby, and brake thermal efficiencies were determined under these conditions. The relative effectiveness of coal in saving diesel fuel was determined.
