Hannes Wästlund is an industrial PhD student at Volvo Technology AB. His research aims at increasing the knowledge regarding the influence of injection- and combustion system strategies on formation and oxidation of NOx and soot. The research is based on optical measurements in a spray chamber and single cylinder engine tests. The diesel engine has a higher efficiency than the Otto-cycle but is restricted by the environmental and health related issues due to its emissions. By increasing the knowledge of the fluid motion during the combustion cycle the emissions from both NOx and soot can be reduced.
