Surrounding gas temperature effects on diesel spray combustion and on soot formation and oxidation were investigated using a Rapid Compression Machine. Higher surrounding gas temperature results in advancing soot formation time and extending low density soot region in the flame, in spite of almost same time history of total amount of soot. And it affects soot density distribution, too. We also examined the conformity of methanol fuel and high-temperature combustion.
