Catalytic Converter for an Exhaust
Model ID: 484
This model describes a common piece of equipment from the chemical and automotive industries: the catalytic converter for exhaust streams. It investigates coupling free and porous media with chemical reaction kinetics. The model couples the free flow in the channel, to convective transport as described by Darcy's Law in the porous catalyst, to mass balances through both domains. The study specifically investigates convective transport in porous media and whether it should be considered.
