CONVERGE contains two detailed soot models – particulate mimic (PM) and particulate size mimic (PSM). Although it is computationally expensive to run a three-dimensional simulation with a detailed soot model and the SAGE detailed chemistry solver, CONVERGE contains acceleration strategies to make it feasible to include detailed soot modeling in engine simulations. In this workshop we will discuss the methodologies of these models, acceleration strategies for detailed soot modeling coupled with gas-phase chemistry, and the effects of important soot parameters. We will also discuss other emissions models (e.g., NOx) and give recommendations for these models.
