Abstract: 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…
