ELECTROHYDRAULIC GAS SAMPLING VALVE WITH APPLICATION TO HYDROCARBON EMISSIONS STUDIES

Design and development of an electrohydraulically actuated gas sampling valve is presented for use in auto engine combustion studies. The gas sampling valve is coupled to a gas chromatograph to measure concentrations of major species components. Initial studies have focussed upon determining species profiles near the wall at specific times after flame arrival at one sampling location in the engine cylinder. The results indicate that the contribution of wall quench layer hydrocarbons to the engine exhaust is substantially smaller than previously estimated.
