ASSESSMENT OF DIESEL PARTICULATE CONTROL: PARTICLE SIZE MEASUREMENTS

The report gives results of tests on an Oldsmobile 98 diesel automobile to obtain data on parameters typical of a light duty vehicle. Data are presented for operations under four simulated driving conditions. (The increasing appearance of the diesel engine on the passenger car market has led to concern over particulate emissions (smoke) from these engines. Possible control strategies involving particulate collection in the hot exhaust stream requires knowledge of the concentrations and size distributions of the particulate matter at exhaust conditions.
