Abstract

The oil consumption determined as the amount of carbons is one of the indexes used for evaluation of the engine technical state. However, the experimental evaluation of hydrocarbons quantity, especially in the case of using modern engines, having high perfection of structure and stability of indicators, is difficult. This fact is explained first of all by the duration of the necessary procedure; the decrease in the testing time may lead to high measuring errors. This problem can be solved by the estimation of the oil consumption by using indirect experimentally defined parameter such as the concentration of the total unburned hydrocarbons in the exhaust gaseous. This will allow to use the instantaneously and singly-minded measures for restoring the regulated characteristics of the engines, and this way decrease the negative results of the environmental pollutions.
The calculation method for determining of diesel oil consumption that has been described is based on the experimental data showing the concentration of the total unburned hydrocarbons in the exhaust gaseous.
