|Advanced Diesel Particulate Filtration Systems|
|I.D. #||C0502||Duration||2 Days|
| As diesel emissions regulations have become more and more stringent, diesel particulate filters (DPF) have become possibly the most important and complex diesel aftertreatment device. This seminar covers many DPF-related topics using fundamentals from various branches of applied sciences such as porous media, filtration and materials sciences and will provide the student with both a theoretical as well as an applications-oriented approach to enhance the design and reliability of aftertreatment platforms. Structure, geometry, composition, performance, applications and optimizations of DPFs are some of the main topics covered in this advanced level seminar. Computer simulation techniques for analysis and optimization of DPF performance are also demonstrated.
| By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
|Who Should Attend|
| This seminar is designed for engineers, scientists, investigators and consultants involved in researching, developing, applications, designing or optimizing diesel exhaust aftertreatment components and systems. Individuals from technical and regulatory institutions as well as individuals from OEMs, suppliers, emissions service companies, research facilities and universities will gain modern knowledge of diesel filter performance.
| Students should have some technical insight into the performance of exhaust emission aftertreatment. Attendees with science or technology background (mechanical/chemical engineering, chemistry, physics) will benefit substantially from this seminar.
