Abstract
Future liquid petroleum fuels, such as those from the Canadian Tar Sands, are expected to have chemical compositions and boiling properties different from those of present-day fuels. In Diesel engine combustion, these changes can affect the ignition delay and hence the power output and efficiency of the engine. In order to gain some fundamental insight into the effects of fuel composition on ignition behaviour, the report presents the results of experiments and mathematical modelling on the ignition behaviour of single fuels composed of two components with differing boiling points and/or chemical reactivities.
