The work contained in this thesis presents a computational study on the effects of fuel stream perturbations in non-premixed flames in terms of pollutant formation (soot and NOx), including the application to a practical case scenario, such as direct injection diesel engine. The initial part of the work concentrates on the implementation in FLUENT of a soot model that is based on the Eddy Dissipation concept of Magnussen, which accounts for the effects of small scale turbulence in the formation and depletion of soot particles.
