Abstract (englisch):
Bio-fuels of the 2nd generation constitute a key approach to tackle
both Greenhouse Gas (GHG) and air quality challenges associated
with combustion emissions of the transport sector. Since these fuels
are obtained of residual materials of the agricultural industry, well-totank
CO2 emissions can be significantly lowered by a closed-cycle of
formation and absorption of CO2. Furthermore, studies of bio-fuels
have shown reduced formation of particulate matter on account of the
fuels’ high oxygen content therefore addressing air quality issues.
However, due to the high oxygen content and other physical
parameters these fuels are expected to exhibit different ignition
behaviour. Moreover, the question is whether there is a positive
superimposition of the fuels ignition behaviour with the benefits of an
alternative ignition system, such as a corona ignition. To shed light
on these questions two oxygenic compounds, oxymethylene ether-1
(OME1) and dimethyl carbonate (DMC) have been studied with
respect to OH* emission throughout ignition and onset of flame-front
propagation in a combustion chamber with a large optical access ... mehr
