Soot filtration modeling and simulation in diesel particulate filter

J. Becker*, M. Azimian, L. Cheng, A. Grier├čer, A. Wiegmann, Math2Market GmbH, Germany

In diesel and gasoline engines, it becomes increasingly important to filter soot emissions from the exhaust. Soot emissions can be reduced by forcing the soot particles to be trapped physically through an installed diesel particulate filter (DPF). The DPF is one of the most essential after-treatment devices invented to reduce particulate matter from diesel engines discharge. For optimal protection of the environment, the international emission standards become stricter and mandatory for more countries. In this way, the study of soot filtration process through the DPF becomes respectively very important. Moreover, the advancement of computational power contributes to better investigation and understanding of the soot filtration phenomena using modelling and simulation techniques.

The goal of this study was to use computer simulation tool (GeoDict®) to design a better DPF having lower pressure drop, higher filter efficiency and longer life time...
