RESEARCH INTO HEAVY OIL AT HANNOVER UNIVERSITY'S INSTITUTE FOR PISTON ENGINES

Research projects on the combustion of heavy fuel oils in diesel engines have been carried out at the University of Hannover's Institute for Piston Engines (IfKo) since the mid-1950s. During the years since the oil crisis of 1973, however, research in this area has developed into one of the leading activities of this West German institute. This article describes the facilities of IfKo, highlights some of the testing conducted there and discusses various research projects.
