Within the European research programme IDEA (Integrated Diesel European Action), detailed experimental and theoretical studies of the fundamental phenomena of the diesel engine such as flow, injection, mixture formation, auto-ignition, combustion and pollutant formation were carried out to improve the knowledge and to set up models for a simulation code. The results of the research work support the design of more efficient engines and the further reduction of soot and NO(x) emissions. They also enable companies to reduce time and cost in developing new engines.
