  • A computational study of compressor surge during transient operation of turbocharged diesel engines

    The transient response of turbocharged diesel engines is of great importance, especially when compressor surge is likely to occur. Turbocharger compressor surge is a dynamic instability mode that can generate air mass flow rate and pressure rise oscillations of large amplitude, and may also induce severe torsional loading to the turbocharger shaft. In this paper, an effort is made to study by ...

  • Fault diagnosis of a diesel engine by using the analysis of instantaneous angular speed with a flexible model

    Engine shaft instantaneous angular speed (IAS) can be used to diagnose combustion related faults and other faults affecting the output of engines, especially for small-scale diesel generators. Unfortunately, it is difficult to apply this technology to monitoring the operational condition of a marine propulsion diesel engine due to its complex shafting systems and multiple factors affecting the ...

  • Waterless coolant extends engine life, saves fuel

    Forget about overheating your cooling systems if you use Evans waterless coolant. With a boiling point of 375 degrees and a freezing point of -40 degrees, your engine operates more efficiently and reduces the cooling load on radiator and fan, says Mark Stone of Evans Cooling Systems, Inc. “Water based coolants run at or near their boiling point, while Evans waterless coolants, due to their ...

  • OEM off-highway `Why aren`t engine OEM`s already using waterless coolant`

    In simple terms, the engine OEMs have been comfortable with existing cooling system arrangements. Engineers leaving school and heading for employment with truck/engine manufactures are educated in the use and limitations of water-based coolants and in many instances, when asked to evaluate the possibility of using a waterless coolant in their engines, they often make assumptions on what they know ...

  • DC Water Taps Into Biodiesel’s Sustainability Benefits

    Sustainability is more than a buzzword at DC Water. Ingrained throughout the agency, sustainability is in high gear at DC Water’s fleet division where biodiesel fuel powers all 230-diesel vehicles, and emissions are closely monitored. “Biodiesel just makes sense,” said Timothy Fitzgerald, Director Fleet Management for DC Water. “We switched to biodiesel in 2007 ...

  • Putting the brakes on biodiesel

      Come December 31st, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) is set to effectively ban biodiesel in the state’s largest markets. The problem, they say, lies with the fuel’s nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions and their contribution to the formation of ground-level ozone in Texas’ eastern counties. According to the TCEQ, biodiesel does not meet the stricter NOx standards recently ...

  • SGBI opinion article: shale gas

    Government perceives electric vehicles to be a panacea that will solve problems surrounding air quality and CO2 emissions simultaneously. The EV has two main selling points: reduced CO2 emissions and high efficiency. However, these are only valid at a superficial level and the argument disintegrates under any level of scrutiny. In terms of CO2 emissions, EVs replace ‘average’ cars to ...

  • Volkswagen’s visionaries

    At Volkswagen’s “future research department” in Wolfsburg, they dream about the car of the future. Only it may not be a car at all. Wolfgang Müller-Pietralla, the 48-year-old head of Volkswagen future research department, flicks through a large folder with images of cars that look like they’re straight out of a science fiction movie. Some are small, others large, some drive on two, others on ...

  • Additives for Fuel Economy

    In our time, the possession of a private vehicle is costly, especially if it does not participate in any business processes. The main item of expenditure is not even wear and replacement of various parts, but high prices for fuel. The situation is complicated by the fact that not all engines consume fuel sparingly. Therefore, car owners have to look for some method to save their money. One of ...

  • Fuel alternatives for heavy equipment

    High fuel prices are leading composters and wood grinders to reevaluate diesel-guzzling heavy equipment, looking to alternatives that are both more cost-efficient and environmentally friendly. This could be as “simple” as filling up existing machines with biodiesel blends, could involve swapping out a diesel model for an electric one, or even go as far as generating electricity on site to power ...

  • Energy consumption in production of concrete

    Concrete is the most common construction material used in building industry. On average approximately 1 ton of concrete is produced each year for every human being in the world. Because of its abundance in the world market, understanding the environmental implications of concrete manufacturing is becoming increasingly important. The production of 1 m³ of concrete requires 2,775 ...

  • Developing Decentralised Distributed Generation in Africa

    Many countries in the developed world created power generation networks based upon large centralised power generation stations with significant investment in power transmission and distribution networks. From the African context this has not happened yet there is a huge need to increase power generation capacity. The thought of addressing this through a small number of large gas, ...

  • Captive power plant efficiency for Africa

    Power distribution networks across Africa are notoriously unreliable. Frequent power interruptions can be enormously costly for many of the continent’s factories. Not only do power outages disrupt production batches, they can also damage or reduce the life of important plant components such as kilns. This too has a knock-on effect on wider the country’s gross domestic product – ...

  • Building New Industries and Creating New Jobs in a Plan B Economy

    Building a new economy, one that can sustain economic progress, involves phasing out old industries, restructuring existing ones, and creating new ones. This new economy will be powered by renewable sources of energy, will have a more diverse transport system--relying more on rail, buses, and bicycles, and less on cars--and will recycle everything. For example, coal use will be phased out, ...
