The focus of this paper is on the physical characterization of exhaust aerosol from an engine used in the University of Minnesota Formula SAE race car. The Formula SAE competition is an annual event sponsored by Society of Automotive Engineers where engineering students design, build and race, small formula style vehicles. The engine used by the University of Minnesota team is a 599 cc engine from a 1999 Yamaha YZF-R6 motorcycle. The intake, exhaust, fuel delivery, and engine control modules are customized by the team. The engine is tuned for maximum performance with little regard for emissions control.
