Application jagan prabhu writes "The main objective of our project work was to reduce the backpressure developed in an automobile silencer.

Initially the backpressure value was measured practically for the existing model and its CFD model was built and analysed. In order to reduce the backpressure different geometrical changes were made to the existing silencer in the CFD software and its flow characteristics were studied.

Out of the different models analysed in CFD, the optimized model was chosen and based on the software model a real model was constructed. Its back pressure value was measured practically and it was found to be less than the existing one. FLUENT 6.1 was used to solve the problem."
