This book is an outcome of successful experimental research on the effectiveness of catalyzed diesel oxidation catalyst on Euro-I, 4 cylinders, water cooled, direct injection, variable speed, automotive compression ignition engine in a laboratory set up in India. The results in the form of carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbon(HC), smoke emissions (Opacity%) and engine performance, obtained using of Diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) and compare with the performance of engine using without DOC and conclusions were drawn. It was found that using diesel oxidation catalyst; CO and HC emissions were almost entirely eliminated. Key Features: # Visual Display - The book has quite a number of pictures of the experimental set-up used for an easy understanding of the engine geometric modifications. The impact has been discussed elaborately with the help of numerous graphs with actual readings.
Prateek Laddha completed his M.Tech in Thermal Engineering from Malviya National Institute of Technology Jaipur (Rajasthan) India, which is an institute of national importance. His research interest is in Thermal Engineering with special focus on emission reduction and performance enhancement of the internal combustion engine.
