Eberspächer and Fluent Developing CFD Technology to Design Automotive Diesel Filters
Posted Thu April 20, 2006 @08:39AM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc., the world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software and services, and J. Eberspächer GmbH & Co. KG, a leading German automotive parts manufacturer, have announced a joint collaboration to develop a diesel particulate filter simulation tool. This new tool will allow companies to computationally design and optimise particulate filters in passenger car and truck applications with respect to soot loading and regeneration behavior for a filter's projected full lifecycle before it is even manufactured.

Increasingly, people in urban landscapes are experiencing deleterious health effects resulting from prolonged exposure to microscopic dust particles, especially particulates coming from the increasing numbers of diesel powered trucks and cars on our roads.
