It is unavoidable that a DI diesel engine exhausts a blue and white smoke at starting, especially in the cold atmosphere. In the report presented here, a small DI diesel engine was started under the conditions of the coolant and suction air whose minimum temperatures were -18°C and -5°C, respectively. The flame was photographed by high-speed photography, the temperature of flame and the soot concentration were measured by two-color method, and CO2 concentration was detected by the luminous… CONTINUE READING
