The consumption of hydrocarbon deposits at a faster rate in the present world the engine manufacturer as well as automobile industry is generating an essential demand for increase in efficiency of internal combustion engine. Advance technology demand for modifications of diesel engine more efficient with respect to fuel economy, power output, and reduce emissions. Engine life depends mainly on the part of the engine, service life increased by considering the part which dominates its major role in the working condition of the engine. higher temperatures demand for enhanced temperature resistant materials to be used. The use of Advance coating material in the automotive industry has been found to yield a significant effect on the efficiency of engines. An experimental investigation is carried out on a partially insulated single cylinder Diesel engine to study the performance and emission characteristics. The Piston Crown is coated with a ceramic material consisting of Zirconium dioxide (ZrO2) with 8% by weight of Yttrium Oxide (Y2O3) by plasma spray method. It was also found that heat lost to coolant is reduced and there is increase in energy of exhaust gases for Low heat rejection (LHR) engine when compared with the conventional single cylinder diesel engine.
