Abstract
Failures in reciprocating internal combustion engines operating with landfill gas are not uncommon. In general, damage is located in the combustion chamber surfaces and in the ring grooves, where a layer of non-volatile combustion products is deposited. These deposits attached to the surfaces reduce heat transfer and increase inner temperature, which produces a knocking phenomena damaging the crank bearings and fusing of the piston head material. Lubrication problems also appear due to the forma...
