Analysis of the changes in mass and size of particles formed during the diesel combustion process, the morphological characteristics, and the trace elements within these amorphous particles was carried out using a total cylinder sampling system installed on a direct injection diesel engine. Utilizing field emission transmission electron microscope technology, the results showed that the amorphous particles formed during the combustion process were abundant in metallic and non-metallic elements mainly derived from the lubrication oil, which was found to have entered the combustion process, oxidized and combusted, further increasing the absorbed carbon particles during the later stages of combustion.
