A Simple But Effective Catalyst Model for Two-Stroke Engines 921693
A mathematical model has been developed which predicts the tailpipe exhaust emissions of two-stroke cycle engines utilising an oxidising catalytic converter.
This model is currently one-dimensional and has been developed as an aid to the design of engine/exhaust systems. The experimental rig employed has a two-fold function, its primary task was to aid in the validation of the model. Secondary to this it was used to simulate the gaseous properties of the exhaust gas at various positions in the exhaust system.
The validation exercise is currently proceeding utilising metallic substrate technology with preliminary results indicating that the model is showing good correlation to measured values.
