Guidelines for the identification of key-factors in the soot generation and oxidation processes in diesel engine

Combustion of a Diesel engine is the combination of many input data flow field, injection strategy, combustion chamber design all related in a non linear process. Furthermore, it is even more difficult to isolate the engine parameters that have a role in the soot formation and oxidation process.

In this sense, some guidelines in the role played by these parameters is very important in the development of new Diesel engines. A wide-data base of engine cases, simulated with a predictive CFD tool, will be generated and used in the identification of these guidelines that will support the engine designers.
