Cylinder pressure under the different condition of injection time and injection quantity is analyzed, due to limited experimental data, it can not meet requirement of acquisition analysis data in any profile, by means of GT-power simulation software, YN4100 diesel engine is selected as calculation object, its specification is followed: bore/stroke 100/105 mm, cylinder number 4, compression ratio 18.5, swirl ratio 2.5, rated power 70 kW, maximal torque/rotation speed 185 Nm/2200 r/min.
1318) describe an approach for one study site, Worcester County, Massachusetts, for which they developed a multivariable, vulnerability-based method for spatial sampling consisting of two descriptive indices: a hazards/stressors exposure index and an adaptive capacity/sociodemographic character index.
