MEASURING AUTOMOTIVE EXHAUST PARTICLES DOWN TO 10 NANOMETRES – DOWN TO TEN
SIZE (nm) OF PARTICLES EMITTED FROM COMBUSTION ENGINES
WE ARE EXPLORING THE DOWN TO TEN WORLD OF EMISSIONS THE SPECIES OF PARTICLES, THEIR CHEMISTRY AND SECONDARY FORMATIONS.
We go below 23 nm to understand, define, develop measurement methods, evaluate, simulate and assist regulate all particles in the exhaust emissions of petrol and diesel engines.
- Describe the nature and the characteristics of nanoparticles <23 nm
- Develop and set up a synthetic aerosol bench and use it for fundamental studies
- Evaluate existing, proposed and under development particle measurement instruments
- Analyse and compare a large number of possible sampling and sample conditioning configurations
- Set-up the Down To Ten PN-PEMS demonstrator
- Explain the nature of particles not included eventually in the method
- Develop and propose an appropriate sampling and measurement methodology for the sub 23 nm for both CVS and RDE
- Model the particle transformation from the tailpipe to the inlet of the measurement equipment
