INFLUENCE OF INJECTION EQUIPMENT CHARACTERISTICS ON THE BEHAVIOUR OF THE DIESEL ENGINE

L'INFLUENCE DES CARACTERISIQUES DE L'EQUIPEMENT D'INJECTION SUR LE COMPORTEMENT DU DIESEL

The author describes the origin and objectives of the research programme carried out by CAV Ltd., and outlines some important investigations carried out by the CAV Ltd., which greatly influenced engine performance and efficiency. These investigations led to the development of combustion process models, with which engine performance was predicted. The performance achieved is compared with the predicted value. A critical examination is made of injection process parameters for direct and indirect injection engines. The experimental techniques used to study starting parameters at ambient and low temperatures enabled (1) the starting behaviour of the engine to be predicted as a function of its intrinsic characteristics, and (2) the development of means of preventing starting problems at the design stage. A systematic study of the origin and causes of the noise emitted by diesel engines led to the determination of some requirements which has to be met by injection equipment, and showed the extent to which the structure of the engine influences combustion noise. Mention is made of present and future legislation concerning exhaust fumes from diesel engines, and the effect of this legislation on diesel engine research programmes is discussed. /TRRL/
