Soot-in-oil 3D volume reconstruction through the use of electron tomography: an introductory study (2015)
Journal Article
La Rocca, A., Campbell, J., Fay, M., & Orhan, O. (2016). Soot-in-oil 3D volume reconstruction through the use of electron tomography: an introductory study. Tribology Letters, 61(1), doi:10.1007/s11249-015-0625-z

Understanding soot nanoparticle interaction with oil additives and the causes of soot-induced thickening would assist in lubricant formulation, prolonging engine life and improving engine efficiency. Three-dimensional measurement of soot structures i... Read More about Soot-in-oil 3D volume reconstruction through the use of electron tomography: an introductory study.

Characterisation of soot in oil from a gasoline direct injection engine using Transmission Electron Microscopy (2015)
Journal Article
La Rocca, A., Bonatesta, F., Fay, M., & Campanella, F. (2015). Characterisation of soot in oil from a gasoline direct injection engine using Transmission Electron Microscopy. Tribology International, 86, 77-84. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.triboint.2015.01.025

In this work, an investigation of soot-in-oil samples drawn from the oil sump of a gasoline direct injection (GDI) engine was carried out. Soot particulate was characterised in terms of size, distribution and shape of the agglomerates, and internal s...
