An existing in-cylinder thermal regeneration concept for Diesel engines is examine the roles of the porous insert motion and the fuel injection strategies on the fuel ev ration and combustion and on the engine efficiency. While the heated air emanating the insert enhances fuel evaporation resulting in a superadiabatic combustion pro (thus increasing thermal efficiency), the corresponding increase in the thermal NO x is undesirable. A two-gas-zone and a single-step reaction model are used with a… CONTINUE READING
