This timely publication contains a number of issues pertaining to diesel combustion and emissions, including theoretical and experimental analysis, system development, and engine emissions evaluation. Contents include; determination of engine cylinder pressures from crankshaft speed fluctuations; improvements in 3-D modeling of diesel engine intake flow and combustion; image analysis of diesel sprays; in-cylinder soot deposition rates due to thermophoresis in a direct injection diesel engine; the measurement and analysis of swirl in steady flow; analysis of swirl in unsteady flow and its effect on diesel combustion; injection timing and bowl configuration effects on in-cylinder particle mass; the role of exhaust pipe and incylinder deposits on diesel particulate composition; laboratory evaluation of an oxidation catalytic converter at various simulated altitudes; and design and development of catalytic converters for diesels.
