Alternative Transportation Fuels Utilisation in Combustion Engines

£39.99

Product description

A continuous rise in the consumption of gasoline, diesel, and other petroleum-based fuels will eventually deplete reserves and deteriorate the environment. Alternative Transportation Fuels: Utilisation in Combustion Engines explores the feasibility of using alternative fuels that could pave the way for the sustained operation of the transport sector. It assesses the potential avenues for using different alternative fuels in the transport sector, highlights several types of transport and its effect on the environment, and discusses the conventional and alternative fuels for land transport. 
Provides experimental investigations relating to the utilisation of alternative fuels in the internal combustion engines.  
Describes the alternative powered vehicles and potential alternative fuels for rail, marine, and aviation applications.
Highlights the potential global warming and climate change on account of utilising the conventional and alternative fuels.
The book starts off with coverage of the fuels for the land transport, aviation sector and reports on the experimental investigations relating to the utilisation of alternative fuels in internal combustion engines. It delivers an in-depth analysis of engine combustion, then focuses on fuel quality characterisation and a modelling of alternative-fuelled engines, and describes alternative-powered vehicles. Based on the authors' experience at laboratories around the globe, Alternative Transportation Fuels: Utilisation in Combustion Engines presents potential alternative fuels for rail, marine, and aviation applications.
