THE EFFECT OF LOAD AND INERTIA ON PARTICULATE EMISSIONS
This report summarizes particulate emissions data from light-duty diesel trucks operating over a range of road loads and inertia weights. The results indicate that diesel particulate emissions are relatively insensitive to road load but are significantly influenced by changes in vehicle inertia weight. Information of this nature is useful in determining differences in particulate emissions that can be expected when the same engine is applied to vehicles of different sizes and weights.
