  • Enhancing the efficiency of crude oil transportation pipeline: a novel approach

    In this paper, exergy and economic analyses are carried out on a 30″ crude oil transportation pipeline and related pump stations. The exergy destructions and losses of the components and the entire system were determined in the operation, resulting in the identification of the gas turbines stacks as the major elements of exergy losses. A proposal has been made for improving the energy and exergy ...

  • Comparison of blends of conventional diesel fuel and CRBO containing high levels of FFA in a DI diesel engine

    This work attempts to analyse the ability of high free fatty acid (FFA) crude rice bran oil (CRBO) in replacing diesel partially in a compression ignition (CI) engine. It was observed that the delay period and the maximum rate of pressure rise for CRBO blends are lower than diesel and is almost inversely proportional to FFA content. Maximum heat release rate for CRBO blends are lower and occur ...
