A methodology has been developed by the authors, in which non-intrusive measurements (engine block vibration) are used for diagnostic purposes of combustion process in Diesel engines. A previous paper of the authors has been devoted to demonstrate the direct relationship between in-cylinder pressure and accelerometer signals, when the vibration transducer is placed in sensitive location. Moreover, in the engine block vibration a frequency band in which such a relationship is very strong has been selected. The aim of this work is to provide a deeper insight into the effects of injection parameters on engine block vibration, in order to investigate the possibility of detecting modification of the in-cylinder pressure evolution by means of the accelerometer signal with the final objective of optimizing the combustion process by means of non-intrusive transducer. In the paper, the experimental apparatus is at first described; then, the processing technique is presented and results are reported and discussed concerning different settings of injection parameters and different values of engine speed and load.
