Abstract

Wall-flow channel models and soot deposition models based on micro scale considerations are integrated into global 3D diesel particulate filter simulations. In addition, transient and steady-state simulations are combined to understand at the same time short- and long-time behaviour of the diesel particulate filter (DPF). The functionality of the simulation tool is achieved and correlations with measured data encourage the use of the model as a tool to predict DPF behaviour.
