INJECTION, ATOMIZATION AND COMBUSTION OF CARBON SLURRY FUELS

Three different carbon blacks were used to formulate nine different slurries in DF-2. The rheological properties of each formulation were examined to determine deviations from Newtonian behavior. The spray characteristics of selected formulations were then examined in a highpressure, high-temperature injection bomb. The cone angle decreased and the penetration rates increased for all of the slurries tested as compared to straight DF-2. These changes were more pronounced as the concentration of carbon black increased. Six formulations of three types of carbon black were tested in a sinle-cylinder, direct injection CLR engine. Apparent heat release rates were computed as a function of crankangle from the cylinder pressure data. Based on the engine performance tests and some limited durability testing it appears that wellformulated carbon black slurries have only minor effects on engine performance and durability.
