Mehdi Zare; Barat Ghobadian; Seyed Reza Hassan-Beygi; Gholamhasan Najafi

Volume 7, Issue 2 , April 2020, , Pages 1-7

  In CI engines, the evaporation rate of fuel on various hot surfaces, including the combustion chamber, has a significant effect on deposit formation and accumulation, the exhaust emissions of PM and NOx, and their efficiency. Therefore, the evaporation of liquid fuel droplets impinging on hot surfaces ...  Read More

Investigating the Batch and Continuous Transesterification of Linseed Oil by Using a Alkaline Heterogeneous Catalyst in a Packed Bed Reactor

Mahdi Hashemzadeh Gargari; Seyed Mojtaba Sadrameli; mohammad taherkhani

Volume 4, Issue 2 and 3 , September 2017, , Pages 1-9

  Both the continuous and batch transesterification of linseed oil were examined in order to maximize the fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) yield. The continuous process was conducted in a packed bed reactor using calcium oxide as a heterogeneous catalyst. In addition, the impact of two variables, namely ...  Read More
