Poster Title: Impact of Biodiesel Fuel on Exhaust Emissions and Combustion Behavior in a Compression Ignition Engine, with a Focus on the Nanostrutrue and Reactivity of Diesel Soot

Authors: Kuen Yehliu and Andrè Boehman 

Poster Abstract: Soy methyl ester biodiesel was studied in a compression ignition engine and the gaseous and particulate emissions were collected. An investigation of the soot fraction showed increased reactivity due to shorter fringe lengths and greater fringe tortuosity.
