The report covers results from experimental work in a durability study using engines mounted on dynamometer stands to determine the effectiveness of advanced emission controls on heavy-duty engines over approximately 1,200 hours of operation. One naturally-aspirated, 4-cycle direct-injection, 636 cubic-inch-displacement (CID) diesel engine and one 345-CID gasoline engine were tested. The emission controls applied were: (1) injection timing retarded 3 percent crank angle from the production engine setting; (2) platinum monolithic oxidation catalysts; and (3) 10% exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). The experimental results and their applicability to the diesel and gasoline engine are presented. Numerous figures and tables are included.
