  3. 3. Simplified models for emission formation in diesel engines during transient operation

    Author : Anders Westlund; Hans-Erik Ångström; Martti Larmi; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Diesel engine; emission modeling; transient operation; NOx; Soot; Mechanical energy engineering; Mekanisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis is the result of the KTH CICERO project “Dynamic Engine Performance” in which the main objective was to develop simple models foremission formation. The demand for such models is increasing, mainly due to the tightening emission legislation for diesel engines which has lead to more complex engines and thereby more laborious development and calibration processes.

  4. 4. Measuring and Predicting Transient Diesel Engine Emissions

    Author : Anders Westlund; Hans-Erik Ångström; Rolf Egnell; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Emission modelling; Mechanical and thermal engineering; Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik;

    Abstract :   Due to its impact on human health and the nature surrounding us, diesel engine emissions have been significantly reduced over the last two decades. This reduction has been enforced by the legislating organs around the world that gradually have made the manufacturers transform their engines to today’s complex high-tech products. READ MORE

  5. 5. Stories of Pasts and Futures in Planning
