A New Combustion System for the Diesel Engine and Its Analysis via High Speed Photography 770674

Described herein is the tuning of the combustion system of a direct injection type diesel engine to obtain low emission level and better fuel economy. Though the most important method of emission control for a direct injection system is considered to be timing retardation, it brings a higher level of smoke density and fuel consumption. In order to remove these faults, the authors developed a new combustion system based on a newly designed intake port which provides a favorable local mixing of fuel droplets and air in the combustion chamber for ignition by means of air turbulence. This new combustion system was analyzed with high speed photographs which were taken from the underside of the piston to enable observing the whole combustion chamber. Favorable characteristics of ignition and burning pattern of the new system were recognized by this analysis.
