Development of an Improved Automotive Diesel Combustion System 540238
INCREASING fuel prices and fuel taxes have forced engine builders to find ways to better engine specific fuel consumption in order to help operators survive the onslaught of increased operating costs. This paper explains how an improved combustion system has yielded up to 15% improvement in fuel consumption.
This system was arrived at by analysis of those previous combustion systems which held most promise. The resulting direct-injection open combustion chamber is described here.
