Argonne National Laboratory's Transportation Technology R&D center is underway with a research project to study how particulate matter (PM) particles form in heavy duty diesel engines. Research to date, derived using transmission electron microscopy, has shown that in low-rpm/low-load conditions, PM particles tend to clump; at higher-rpm/high-load (1,400 rpm/50% load) operating levels, particles are more individualized. The project, partially funded by the U.S. Dept. of Energy, will ...
