Characterization of Catalytic Converter Mat Material for Predictive Analysis 2000-01-0218

ABSTRACT

Catalytic converters are typically constrained and cushioned by an intumescent mat material that is critical to the durability of the ceramic and metallic substrates. In an effort to reduce costs and improve designs, this work attempts to develop and verify a material model for the mat that can be utilized in predictive analysis. Test data are used in conjunction with the finite element program ABAQUS™ to create both a hyperfoam and a user-defined material model. These models will be verified and compared by modelling with ABAQUS the specimens and test conditions used to generate the data.
