Simulating Heat Transfer in Catalyst Substrates with Triangular and Sinusoidal Channels and the Effect of Oblique Inlet Flow 2000-01-0206
Heat transfer in automotive exhaust catalyst systems with metallic substrates is modeled using a commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code. The substrate channels are modeled by approximating their geometry as both triangular and sinusoidal. The effect of the packing arrangement of adjacent channels is investigated. The effect of the angle of the flow entering ceramic substrate monoliths on the localised heat transfer is also studied and the related implications for catalyst aging and light off deduced.
