Abstract
The overall program objective is to carry out defence related research on future Canadian off-specification fuels for current and future Canadian Forces land vehicle compression ignition powerplants with special emphasis on the AVGP-GM6V53T engine. To the end, a broad research plan was established including engine brake and indicated performance testing, combustion monitoring, thermodynamic and multidimensional modeling. The principal objectives of the test program are: (a) to accurately define the performance and operability of the 6V53T engine on off-specification diesel fuels; and, (b) to establish detailed indicated performance and combustion related data so as to allow direct correlation with the modeling program. The volume reports on the experimental program executed to meet the R & D objectives stated above. To define the performance and operability of the 6V53T engine on off-specification fuels required classical engine-fuel testing to SAW standards.
