Abstract:

The technical objectives of this program are to aid the DoD in meeting current and future NAAQS PM2.5 regulations by 1 establishing the fundamental science base needed to develop and validate soot models for realistic fuels and 2 aiding in obtaining substantial reductions of PM2.5 emissions from current and future GTEs in military platforms. The overarching research strategy for achieving the objective of this program involves strongly coupled, mutually supportive experiments and simulations. A series of well-controlled laboratory experiments are performed that methodically progress in complexity in a way that permits systematic analysis of all the data, thus leading to a more unified understanding of soot processes.
