3-D Catalytic Regeneration and Stress Modeling of Diesel Particulate Filters by ABAQUS FEM Software 2002-01-1017

The design of reliable DPF systems has proved a complex and demanding task that is increasingly being assisted by modeling. 1-D but also 2-D (axisymmetric) modeling has already been applied in design optimization case studies, with varying degrees of success. The introduction of advanced technology SiC and cordierite filters with modular structure and the need to accurately model transient temperature and stress fields in low space velocity scenarios, made necessary the shift to 3-D modeling. In this paper, 3-D modeling is carried out in an effective and reliable way, by interfacing a well-documented and validated 1-D model with the ABAQUS commercial FEM software. The new modeling methodology proves a powerful tool in the hands of the filter and diesel exhaust system design engineer.
