Abstract:The mechanism of soot reduction from oxygenated fuels was explored. DBM and TPME oxygenated fuels with 7% oxygen by weight were studied and have shown different soot reduction performances at different diesel combustion modes. In the premixed combustion mode, the higher oxygen efficiency from TPME due to its molecular structure advantage contributes to the less soot generation. While at mixing controlled combustion mode, DBM oxygenated fuel has less soot formation due to its capability to entrain more ambient air. The influences of both fuel physical and chemical properties on soot formation were further demonstrated with the study of tetradecane and two commercial diesel fuels.
