Biodiesel was found to be a promising alternative source to diesel fuel for which the engine characteristics can be improved by means of Nano additives. The present work deals with the effect of calcium oxide Nano fluid on the performance, emission and combustion characteristics of diesel engine fuelled with ternary blends comprising of Calophyllum, Neem biodiesel and diesel fuel. Calcium oxide was synthesised by means of calcination process from Mactra Corallina sea shell. The calcium oxide was converted into Nano particles by means of ball milling and dispersed in distilled water using ultra-sonication to form Nano fluids. The stability of Nano fluid was found to be effective at 100 ppm. Blend selected for the study has the proportion of 95 % biodiesel (B20), 3 % Nano fluid and 2 % surfactant labelled as B20 + NF. Results show that addition of Nano fluid to biodiesel increased Brake Thermal Efficiency and reduced Brake Specific Fuel Consumption.

Corrosive and wear characteristics of biodiesel are important for long term durability of engine parts. The present study aims to compare the corrosion and wear behavior of aluminum and cast iron in both diesel and biodiesel. Immersion tests in biodiesel (B100) and diesel (D100) were carried out at 30°C for 1300 h. At the end of the test, corrosion characteristic was investigated by weight loss measurements and changes on the exposed metal surface. Surface morphology and Energy dispersive x-ray analysis was examined by scanning electron microscopy with energy dispersive X-ray analysis (SEM/EDAX). The Results show that the extent of corrosion and change in fuel properties upon exposure to metals are more in biodiesel than that in diesel. Wear tests are performed for variety of reason, characterize materials and to select material for specific applications. To investigate the friction an wear behavior of bio diesel based lubricant variants pin on disc tribometer (Ducom).
