This e-book includes the complaints of the foreign Symposium on replacement and complex automobile Engines, held in Vancouver, B.C., on August eleven and 12, 1986. The symposium used to be subsidized via EXPO 86 and The collage of British Columbia, and was once a part of the really expert sessions application of EXPO 86, the 1986 world's reasonable held in Vancouver. a few eighty attendees have been drawn from eleven international locations, representing the tutorial, automobile­ purpose and big engine groups. the aim of the symposium was once to supply a serious evaluate of the foremost choices to the inner combustion engine. The scope of the symposium was once restricted to attention of combustion engines, in order that electrical strength, for instance, used to be now not thought of. This used to be now not a reflec­ tion at the attainable contribution which electrical propulsion could make sooner or later, yet relatively an try and concentration the court cases extra sharply than if all attainable propulsion platforms have been thought of. during this method all the individuals have been in a position to perform the occasionally energetic dialogue periods following the presentation of every paper.

S. S. to serve as more than a blending agent. In some other countries, however, neat ethanol makes more sense. For example, ethanol from sugar cane has been widely used in Brazil. Methanol is made principally from natural gas, although some day it might come in significant quantities from coal. That prospect has helped to stir interest in the long-range use of methanol as a common automotive fuel. With an octane rating around a hundred, methanol is able to tolerate a higher knock-limited compression ratio than gasoline for greater thermal efficiency.

29. They typify a recurring problem in many lean-burn engines, whether homogeneous or stratified. It is seen from the figure that the engine was able to run at quite lean air-fuel ratios, and that the NOx emission was quite low at those ratios. This is indeed essential because of the inability to use a reducing catalyst for NOx control at such lean mixtures. Unfortunately, the HC emission concurrently rose to unacceptable levels. Catalytic treatment of this emission with an oxidizing catalyst is made difficult at such lean mixtures by the associated low exhaust-gas temperature.
