Emissions standards for diesel engines are becoming so stringent that it is now necessary to consider the entire engine-fuel-lubricant vehicle system. The papers in this publication focus on the effects fuel composition and properties have on emissions, the interaction of mixture preparation and exhaust emissions, and after treatment strategies. Contents include: the effects of fuel properties and oxygenates on diesel exhaust emissions; the effect of fuel processes on heavy duty automotive diesel engine emissions; novel additive for particulate trap regeneration; numerical investigation of soot formation and oxidations under diesel engine conditions; in cylinder augmented mixing though controlled gaseous jet injection; self-cleaning electrostatic muffler for diesel vehicles; emissions from diesel vehicles with and without lean NOx and oxidation catalysts and particulate traps; and more.
