Nowadays, Gas turbines are developing more than before and one of the most important components of these turbines improving continuously is their combustor. In the recent years strict standards for controlling the amount of pollutants releasing from aero engines have been established and these standards are moving towards limiting these pollutants. Hence one of the most important criteria of combustor design is keeping its emissions at a lowest possible amount. In this study, at first an algorithm for combustor design has been calculated and then by means of this algorithm the combustor of CF6-80E1A4 engine is designed again. The amount of the produced emissions of the designed combustor has...

Fault monitoring in internal-combustion engines is crucial for keeping the vehicle performance within the acceptable standards of emission levels and drivers' demands. This paper analyses how a vehicle's performance and engine variables are affected by a leakage fault in the exhaust manifold. The threshold leakage that causes the vehicle to exceed the emission standards is determined for a class M1 vehicle tested on a chassis dynamometer over the New European Driving Cycle. It is shown that, when a leakage of 6 mm diameter on the exhaust manifold is introduced, the vehicle emissions exceed those specified in the European 2013 on-board diagnostics standard. In addition, the effects of the...
Study of a newly isolated thermophilic bacterium capable of Kuhemond heavy crude oil and dibenzothiophene biodesulfurization following 4S pathway at 60°C, Article Journal of Chemical Technology and Biotechnology ; Volume 83, Issue 12 , June , 2008 , Pages 1689-1693 ; 02682575 (ISSN) ; Shayegan, J ; Yaghmaei, S ; Alemzadeh, I ; Sharif University of Technology
Background: To meet stringent emission standards stipulated by regulatory agencies, the oil industry is required to bring down the sulfur content in fuels. As some compounds cannot be desulfurized by existing desulfurizing processes (such as hydrodesulfurization, HDS) biodesulfurization has become an interesting topic for researchers. Most of the isolated biodesulfurizing microorganisms are capable of desulfurization of refined products whose predominant sulfur species are dibenzothiophenes so biocatalyst development is still needed to desulfurize the spectrum of sulfur-bearing compounds present in whole crude. Results: The first desulfurizing bacterium active at 60 °C has been isolated,...

To meet stringent emission standards stipulated by regulatory agencies, the oil industry is required to bring down the sulfur content in fuels. Oil supplies 38% of the worldwide energy, and as the light oil is limited and meanwhile the energy demand is increasing, it is a must to use heavy crude oil and therefore desulfurize it to meet environmental standards. As it is not feasible to desulfurize all the sulfur containing compounds of heavy crude oil by the existing methods (such as hydro-desulfurization) we have focused on biodesulfurization of heavy crude oil. We have isolated the first native fungus which has been identified as Stachybotrys sp. and is able to remove sulfur and nitrogen...
