Investigation of nanoparticulate morphology at PPC and HCCI modes
1. A thermophoretic probe will be designed for soot collection from engines exhaust pipe.2. The nanoparticulate will be collected for morphology from different combustion mode, like HCCI, PPC, and CI.3. The distribution of particle size and number density will be investigated.4. The low octane number fuel, naphtha, will be fueled with the compression ignition engine to investigate the nanoparticulate emissions
