Modeling of Exhaust Gas Treatment for Stationary Applications 2012-01-1300

Due to the strong motivation to reduce costs and increase performances of stationary diesel after-treatment systems, computational modeling has become a necessary step in system design and improvement. A unique mixing duct with significant changes in scale and strong flow curvature was evaluated for its potential to improve flow distribution across the SCR catalyst inlet face. The flow dynamics were investigated with a steady three-dimensional turbulence model and detailed chemistry was studied separately using a one-dimensional channel reactive flow model. Aqueous urea injection was modeled using Discrete Phase Modeling. The mixing duct performance relative to reactor dimensions and engine loads is discussed. A total of three geometries were evaluated using a Uniformity Index of the ammonia-to-NOx feed ratio. It was found that a higher mixing duct height to inlet diameter ratio yielded better mixing.
