The dual-fuel engine concept is one possible approach to minimize the air pollutants but to keep high efficiencies at the same time. As a part of the project LEDF concepts, which was realized at the University of Rostock, experimental investigations of the boundary conditions of the dual-fuel combustion process regarding fuel injection, mixture formation and the ignition behavior had been carried out at a medium-speed single-cylinder research engine.

1 Close Collaboration of Experiments and Simulations

Against the background of the ongoing and intensifying discussion about the emission legislation within the maritime sector the Dual-Fuel (DF) engine concept is one possible approach to minimize the air pollutants but to keep high efficiencies at the same time. For the optimal usage of such combustion processes a far reaching understanding of the fuel injection, mixture formation and ignition behavior of the pilot spray is an essential needing. Therefore, test bed experiments and...
