Dr. Mohammed A. Fayad from our center granted a patent from Central Organization for Standardization and Quality/Ministry of Planning under No. 6178 on 12/2/2020 within the classification F01N13/08 entitled:
“A new method to analysis the physical and nanostructure properties of particulate matter (PM) emitted from diesel engine”
Our invention relates to find a new method to analysis the physical [number (npo), diameter (dpo), radius of gyration (Rg) and fractal dimension Df)] and nanostructure (interlayer spacing (d002) and the thickness (Lc) and width (La) of the graphene layer) properties of particulate matter (PM) by using two high resolution equipment. Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (SMPS) and High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM) were used to analyses the PM and then subsequent with Matlab code (Digital image process) to evaluate the collected sample from the exhaust gas of actual diesel engine which operated by conventional diesel fuel and renewable fuels (biodiesel and butanol blend). The PM was analysed under different exhaust temperatures between 100 °C to 500 °C. The current method helps to understanding the physical and nanostructure of particulate matter which gives an insight and best understanding of physical and nanostructure properties of PM to reduce and control effect of these emissions on human health and environment. Furthermore, study impact of renewable fuels on improving the combustion performance and reduce the harmful emissions.
