Nucleation Particles from Diesel Exhaust

Schematic of the emissions and particle formation mechanisms in
diesel exhaust. Solid lines indicate well-established processes, dotted lines
indicate processes under discussion.

In this project (2002 - 2003) we performed chassis dynamometer test and field measurements of Diesel exhaust particles with special emphasis on nucleation particles, in coorporation with the Ford Research Center Aachen (FFA).
