diesel index

diesel index

[′dē·zəl ‚in‚deks]
(chemical engineering)
An empirical expression for the correlation between the aniline number of a diesel fuel and its ignitability.
(mechanical engineering)
Diesel fuel rating based on ignition qualities; high-quality fuel has a high index number.

(1987), the quality parameter of diesel fuel is influenced by specific gravity, viscosity, aniline point and diesel index, and therefore this experiment covered physical characterization obtained by specific gravity parameter, viscosity, aniline point, flash point, API gravity and diesel index.
