Displacement of small granular particles during the flow process has been measured by laser speckle correlation with counting of pixel shifting technique. Speckle pattern velocimetry provides instant velocity measurements in a fluid flow. Micron size particles are seeded in the stream, which scatters laser light. With the help of cylindrical lens, a laser sheet designed to illuminate the particles in the measurement plane. CCD is placed perpendicular to the laser sheet to acquire sequential images of the illuminated flow field. The second image is recorded a short time later during which the seeds will have relocated due to the flow. The image pair develops a field of linear displacement vectors. This effort sorts out the ambiguity in direction of displacement by cross correlation. The displacement and velocity measurements are estimated by a novel counting of pixel shifting calculation method.

In this paper, a non-intrusive, unique optical measurement technique of seeding polystyrene granular beads image velocimetry has been described. The flows of seeded particles are illuminated by laser light and double frame-single exposure images are captured at a specified interval of time. Images are segmented into sub interrogation domain and cross correlation of images are evaluated by Fast Fourier Transform method. From the captured images, particle displacement is calculated and then magnitude of the velocity of micron size seeds in the plane is estimated. This technique is most suitable for high density concentration of seeded particles. Laser speckle velocimetry has wide range of pulse separation time and reduction of noise in the estimation of fluid velocity without directional ambiguity.

This experimental study is focused on the significance of Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) composition for usage of biodiesel in diesel engines. Karanja Oil Methyl Esters (KOME) from two different feed stocks were selected for the study. FAME composition was analysed by gas chromatography and physical, chemical properties were evaluated. KOME 30% blends with diesel were analysed for performance and Emission characteristics. The present work predicted that H30 sample 1 with higher unsaturation has resulted in higher peak pressure, higher NOx emissions, as compared to H30 sample 2 with lower unsaturation fatty acid methyl ester composition.

In this paper, hardware development, software coding using embedded C programming language for an Arduino ATMEGA microcontroller, calibration of electronic control unit (ECU) was tested for a research engine to control the fuel injection flow rate with respect to the suction top dead center (TDC) of the engine. The system could control the fuel flow rate with a variable reluctance sensor, an Arduino microcontroller and a solenoid operated injector in a closed loop domain with a varying pulse width modulator controlled exclusively by the engine operator. The injection flow rates were measured and calibrated with the calculated fuel flow rates for different equivalence ratios (Ø) of the engine. The results showed a very close match between the measured fuel flow rates after calibration and the calculated fuel flow rates at 1500 RPM. The gasoline mass flow rate error was reduced from 40% to 3.25% by compensating the ON/OFF time of the pulse width.
