Evaluation of the suitability of synthetic polymer fuels in self-ignition engines

The article presents a method for determining the quality of spraying a mixture of oil and synthetic fuels obtained from the processing of polymer materials. Laboratory tests of physical parameters of such a mixture were carried out, which made it possible to determine the limit values for the volume fraction of synthetic fuels. The method of determining the suitability of this type of fuel takes into account the criterion numbers Re and Oh, which include physical parameters such as viscosity, density and surface tension. Experimental part concerning distribution of droplets of injected fuel and determination of mean Sauter diameter using laser diffraction confirmed the usefulness of the developed method for the assessment of the possibility of using a mixture of petroleum and synthetic fuels in self-ignition engines
