An attempt has been made evaluate the performance parameters and emission parameters of a 4-stroke diesel engine induced with Hydrogen based liquid additives with Simrouba biodiesel blends. Distilled water is used as the hydrogen liquid additives as it is the easily available Hydrogen Based liquid compound. At higher temperatures that exist inside the engine these compounds will dissociate into hydrogen and oxygen. The Hydrogen will combust with the fuel and the oxygen so released will assist the complete combustion of the fuel thereby improving the performance of the engine. Engine performance parameters like Brake power, Brake Specific Fuel Consumption, Brake Thermal Efficiency and emission parameters like HC, NOx, and CO2 emissions were evaluated for various proportions of mineral diesel replacement by distilled water for various loadings.
