In this research work, a direct injection diesel engine with the implementation of porous medium combustion technique has been investigated for performance and emission characteristics. The porous medium combustion technique has been established in the present work by the introduction of porous ceramic material into the combustion chamber. The nitrogen oxide and soot emission of porous medium engine are found to be lower to that of conventional engine. However the soot emissions are higher in the porous medium engine under part load conditions.
