Abstract

In many applications like Transportation, Power generation, Marine applications etc., diesel Engines are being
used as a major source. During last century, the uses of fossil resources are increasing due to significant growth of
population and change in life style. This causes crises of fossil fuel depletion For the diesel engines there is an urgent need
for suitable alternative fuels .In this paper will be examined the use of diesel-corn oil mixtures in diesel four stroke engine..
With diesel and different blends of corn oil, an attempt is made to analyze the performance and emission characteristics of a
diesel engine. Based on experimental analysis of the engine brake power specific fuel consumption thermal efficiencies are
calculated. Emissions such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide are measured.
