Characteristics of particulate emission from marine diesel engines
Published July 13, 1999 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
In this report, experimental investigation was conducted with two marine diesel engines, such as high-speed, four-stroke engine and low-speed, two-stroke engine. The effects of atmospheric humidity, intake air temperature and sulfur content of the fuel on particulate emission have been examined. It is found that both scavenging air humidity and scavenging air temperature promote the particulate emission for the two-stroke engine and that the particulate concentration tends to increase with an increase in sulfur content for the four-stroke engine.
