Abstract: a b s t r a c tFormaldehyde (CH 2 O) is a characteristic species for the ignition phase of diesel-like fuels. As such, the spatio-temporal distribution of formaldehyde is an informative parameter in the study of the ignition event in internal combustion engines, especially for new combustion modes like homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI). This paper presents quantitative data on the CH 2 O distribution around diesel and n-heptane fuel sprays in the combustion chamber of a commercial heavy-duty dies…
