Optimization of Sinter Metal Filters with Ceramic Fiber Layers
Fraunhofer ITWM cooperates with Robert Bosch GmbH to develop innovative particle filtering systems for the exhaust gas system of diesel vehicles. Research mainly focusses on sinter metal filters with ceramic fiber layers. These materials have to be optimized regarding to backpressure and filter lifetime.
This requires generating the sinter substrate as a virtual geometry using ITWM's structure generator GeoDict.
Due to the large scale range, flow and particle simulations are performed on the micro scale and on the nano scale.
