The need for manufacturers to meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mobile source diesel emissions standards for on-highway light duty and heavy duty vehicles has been the driving force for the control of diesel particulate and NOx emissions reductions. Diesel Particulate Emissions: Landmark Research 1994-2001 contains the latest research and development findings that will help guide engineers to achieve low particulate emissions from future engines. Based on extensive SAE literature from the past seven years, the 45 papers in this book have been selected from the SAE Transactions Journals. Contents include: Overview of Particulate and NOx Reduction Strategies; Measurement Techniques and Fundamental Considerations; Aftertreatment Controls; Fuel and Additive Effects; Modeling of Traps. Additional topics in this book cover the effect of different trap materials and research describing new materials. Several papers on computer modeling of the fluid flow, heat transfer, and kinetics of particulate oxidation are also included.
