Abstract

A detailed comparative analysis of transport and thermodynamic properties of biodiesel fuels and components of these fuels is presented. Five types of biodiesel fuels are considered: Palm Methyl Ester, produced from palm oil; Hemp Methyl Esters, produced from hemp oil in the Ukraine and European Union; Rapeseed oil Methyl Ester, produced from rapeseed oil in the Ukraine; and Soybean oil Methyl Ester, produced from soybean oil. Up to 16 components (methyl esters in most cases) of these fuels are considered. The results are applied to the analysis of biodiesel fuel droplet heating and evaporation in conditions relevant to internal combustion engines, using the model described elsewhere.
