High-pressure common-rail injection systems with after-treatment technologies, exhaust gas recirnowadays allow a very high degree of flexibility in the culation (EGR), injection shaping  and electronic timing and quantity control of multiple injections, which engine control [4, 5]. can be used to obtain significant reductions in engine noise Further improvements have recently been and emissions. The aim of this study is to develop a better obtained thanks to the common-rail fuel injection understanding of the relationship between injection stra- system, which allows a higher level of injection tegies and the combustion and emission formation process. pressure and a more flexible control of the injecSome multiple injection strategies (pilot± pilot± main and tion strategy [6± 10].
