Particulate Matter (soot) emitted by internal combustion engines poses a real threat for human health and the environment; it also affects engine durability and oil change intervals.
The understanding of exhaust and soot-in-oil characteristics and the effects of particular matter on oil properties is investigated by using specific and powerful diagnostic techniques; the nanosize scale and oil environment make the investigation highly challenging.
New characterisation tools have been developed by the group allowing for insight into the fundamental understanding of soot-in-oil morphology, transfer mechanisms and agglomerate behaviour in lubricant oil.
Advanced diagnostics tools for nanoparticles in oil allow for a better understanding of lubricant degradation and oil thickening.
