This paper describes a study of the exhaust aerosols produced by a single cylinder Onan diesel engine using a rapid dilution sampling system. Diluted exhaust aerosols were analyzed with an electrical aerosol analyzer (EAA) and a transmission electron microscope. Mass concentrations of particulate matter were determined by gravimetric filter analysis. The three methods measure different properties of the aerosol and consequently are not strictly comparable. Filter and EAA mass concentration measurements are in qualitative agreement but do show quantitative disagreement. The TEM photomicrographs show particles with a range of sizes from 0. 06 mu to . 6 mu m. They also show the existence of both chain agglomerates and spherical agglomerates.
