REVIEW OF DIESEL COMBUSTION MODELS FOR NOX AND SMOKE EMISSIONS

A comprehensive review of diesel emissions models is presented together with assessments of the pertinent fundamental NOx and soot kinetics. The results of diesel emissions experiments carried out at Southampton are also presented and correlations are suggested. The review suggests that available emissions models do not incorporate a sufficiently detailed description of the fundamental mixing and chemical kinetic processes occurring in the diesel. They cannot therefore be used predictively. Suggestions are made for model development, fundamental data acquisition and the use of incylinder experimental techniques. The latter are required to obtain data on the flowfield and mixing processes occurring in the diesel combustion chamber.
