    Abstract :

    The major challenges in the field of automobile industry are controlling of pollution, low fuel consumption, non usage of fossil fuels, comfort design to meet the growing needs, low cost and long life. Those challenges can be meet by proper combustion of fuel, selection of appropriate materials for the engine parts , reduction of the whole weight, non usage of fossil fuels, innovative design in construction and working principle of engine, use various alternative fuels and different fuel injecting techniques to develop pollution free and low cost engines. In present scenario the research level has reached to peak positions in the area of IC Engines as per the needs and demands of control of emissions. This paper deals with experimental investigation of performance of the engine as well as exhaust emissions by supplementing Acetylene gas with diesel, design and CFD analysis of mixing box and also applying Exhaust gas recirculation technique. A standard Variable compression ratio engine is selected and the engine first runs with only diesel and secondly Acetylene of different volumes and air is mixed in a new designed mixing box and supplied to the engine cylinder. The EGR technique is also applied in this experimental work to evaluate and quantify the engine performance characteristics and emissions of exhaust. Based on the study and analysis obtained results of experiments it is possible to run the diesel engine along with Acetylene without compromising the efficiency at lowest acceptable pollution levels.
