Abstract:

A SHOCK TUBE STUDY OF SOOT FORMATION IN AROMATIC FUELS IS PROPOSED. THE DATA BASE ON SOOT FORMATION RATES AND MECHANISMS AVAILABLE FROM PREVIOUS SHOCK TUBE, FLAME AND FLOW REACTOR EXPERIMENTS IS LIMITED TO PRESSURE BELOW TEN ATMOSPHERES. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE HIGH PRESSURE ENVIRONMENT OF THE DIESEL ENGINE WILL SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT THE SOOTING PHENOMENOLOGY. THEREFORE, USE OF LOW PRESSURE DATA TO ESTIMATE SOOT EMISSIONS OR TO EVALUATE SOOT SUPPRESSION SCHEMES IS QUESTIONABLE. THE PROPOSED STUDY WILLRESULT IN DATA THAT WILL ENABLE QUANTIFICATION OF THE PRESURE DEPENDENT OF SOOT YIELDS IN A THERMODYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT APPROPRIATE FOR DIESEL ENGINE APPLICATIONS.
