Formation and oxidation of particles generated within the cylinder of a passenger-car-type indirect-injection diesel engine have been studied. The history of both the particle mass and surface concentration were determined within the combustion chamber at different crankangles during expansion stroke using a system which allows the cylinder contents to be rapidly expelled, diluted, and collected in a sampling bag for subsequent analysis with an electrical aerosol analyzer. A stochastic model was used to simulate measured particle concentration profiles.
