Abstract: Inorganic nanotubes are attracting the attention of many scientists and investigators, due to their outstanding application potential in different fields. Researches have been performed in the field of internal combustion engines by adding nanoparticles into the diesel fuel and in biodiesel and blends and their effect on overall performance were studied. It is understood that doping of nanoparticles tend to decrease the emission levels from the engines. Owing to that idea, this project is directed to investigate the effect of doping nanoparticle over the performance and emission characteristics of a compression ignition engine. Nanotubes are mixed with diesel fuel as a fuel additive at different compositions that are 25 ppm, 50 ppm, 100 ppm to find the variation in performance and emission characteristics and results indicate that nanoparticle doped fuel shall be used as an alternate fuel without any modifications to engine structure.
Keywords: Fuel Additive, Nanoparticle, Engine Performance, Emission Reduction.
