Penn State, U Mich team characterizes soot generated by low-temperature diesel combustion

Penn State, U Mich team characterizes soot generated by low-temperature diesel combustion 29 July 2016 Researchers from Penn State and the University of Michigan have characterized the nanostructure and oxidative reactivity of soot generated by a light-duty turbodiesel engine operating under a dilute, low-temperature combustion process referred to as high-efficiency clean combustion (HECC). Their paper appears in the International Journal of Engine Research . Earlier work by members of the team (Gregory Lilik and André Boehman) had shown that high cetane number fuel with HECC leads to reductions in all primary pollutant emissions—i.e., THC and CO as well as NOx and PM. (Earlier post .) Less established, however, is how well such dilute combustion processes influence soot formation. HECC is achieved by operating a common rail diesel engine with a single early fuel injection...
