Excellent course, I could learn a lot about the diesel engine. But one point I don't understand so far is: What makes the heat release decline so rapidly after it has once been ignited in the premix combustion phase? It would seem logically to me that after it once had been ignited that it would combust all the fuel that gets into the engine in one continuous process.

I thought this is probably a tricky question :)
