Abstract
There have been a number of recently reported investigations on the use of alternate fuels in medium speed diesel engines. In Canada, the Department of National Defence, Defence Research Establishment, Ottawa commissioned an investigation conducted by Bombardier on the Bombardier/Alco 251 engine. The U.S. Government also sponsored extensive work at the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas. The paper reviews and analyses the reports from these investigations as well as the published literature on developments elsewhere. After conducting a literature survey and compiling an extensive bibliography, salient technical information relating to correlation of fuel properties have been extracted and presented in the paper.
