Reducing emissions to enhance performance and meet regulations is an important topic for designers and manufacturers of internal combustion engines, gas turbines, and other systems. For IC engines, there are two primary areas of focus for this pursuit: reduction of engine-out emissions and engine aftertreatment.
In this course we will discuss CONVERGE’s emissions modeling options for soot, NOx, unburned hydrocarbons, and CO. We will look at CONVERGE’s acceleration strategies that make it feasible to use even detailed soot models (which includes gas-phase chemistry for its many sub-processes, such as formation via precursor-species, coagulation, and oxidation) in complex simulations, and we will discuss our recommendations for obtaining accurate emissions results. *This session does not include hands-on CONVERGE Studio practice.
