This paper presents local experimental in-cylinder concentrations of nitric oxide, obtained by laser-induced fluorescence measurements in a heavy-duty diesel engine. Quantitative concentration histories during the entire combustion stroke are shown for a number of fuel injection timings. Using images from high-speed combustion visualization experiments, the presence of the diffusion flame is related to the onset of NO formation within the laser probe volume. Further attention is paid to the possible NO format…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
