Abstract
Nowadays, environmental concerns have created the need of evolution in combustion engines
for trying to give a solution to the growing problem of pollution produced by the combustion
of fossil fuels. This master thesis project has been motivated by the developing of dual fuel
engines with natural gas as main energy source for being an alternative to traditional
combustion engines. Dual fuel is still a new technology that needs of research for a complete
understanding of its operation, such as advantages and drawbacks, in order to improve it.

For that reason, a CNG-diesel dual fuel engine has been modelled through computer software
GT-POWER with the main objective of studying CNG distribution in the intake manifold and
how this... (More)
