Effects of Diesel Fuel Properties on Particulate Emissions From D.I. Diesel Engine - Part 2: Chemical Analysis and Characterization of Diesel Oil -

Event: JSAE Autumn Conference
Several analytical methods of diesel fuel were examined to clarify the relationship between the fuel properties and particulate emission. The method utilizing the polarity, boiling point, and molecular weight of hydrocarbon clarified the entire composition of the fuel. Based on the model of particulate formation, new criterion estimating particulate emission was found. The strongest correlation was observed between the rate of residual fuel (R T) multiplied by the C/H ratio, for instance, RT (C/H)T(T:e,g,310C) and particulate emission.
