Particulate matter emissions
Measure, correlate and reduce
Our main area of research is on nano-scale particulate matter from Gasoline Direct Injection engines. Extensive work has been carried out related to heat release and engine out particulate matter , correlating gaseous emission and particulate matter and the measurement uncertainties related to nano-scale particulate matter measurement.
The following are ongoing projects:
- Formation mechanisms of nano-scale particulate matter in GDI engines
- Effect of engine operating conditions especially during cold start on particulate Matter
- The role of Three Way Catalytic converter on engine out nano-scale particulate matter
