Abstract
Emission legislation for medium-speed marine engines are becoming more and more regulated to improve air quality. These engines differ from automotive engines in several ways: the combustion chamber is much bigger, combustion duration is longer and injection technology is different as well. One-D engine simulation code was unable to capture emission formation for all operating points. To improve the understanding of the combustion process with marine fuel injections, a constant volume combustion chamber was improved for repeatability and reliability. A database with variable ambient conditions was then measured. Finally, a simplified simulation model was employed to estimate local conditions in the spray.
