An Analytical Framework for the Study of Exhaust Manifold Reactor Oxidation 700109

A mathematical model has been formulated which accounts reasonably well for experimental observations made on the steady-state performance of an insulated exhaust manifold reactor when connected to a single-cylinder engine.
The model, which is based on chemical reaction kinetics and energy balance considerations, predicts the effects of air-fuel ratio and dilution air quantity on the reduction of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons in engine exhaust gas.
This paper includes a description of the model development, a discussion of qualitative relationships, and a comparison of quantitative predictions made from the model to experimental results.
