NITRIC OXIDE FORMATION IN DIESEL ENGINES

A combustion model is presented to account for the nitric oxide formation in diesel engines at all operating conditions. The paper tries to introduce the concept of variable air-fuel ratio estimated to exist during diesel combustion. Analytical solutions are found to be in good agreement with experimental results. Further investigations will be directed to diesel engines having combustion systems other than the M.A.N.-FM system, and to possible remedies to reduce the formation of nitrogen oxides.
