Modeling and analysis of Inertial filter for Engine exhaust applications

The scope of this project is to model and analyze inertial filters used by combustion engines to facilitate exhaust gas recirculation acting as coarse filtration units. This would help to reduce environmental pollution caused by heavy duty diesel engines. By using Finite Element Analysis model to investigate, the design will incorporate the best ratio among the geometric parameters which will enable the least pressure drop for stipulated flow rate. Lower the pressure drop higher will be the fuel savings. The benefits will be seen as reduced pollution from medium – heavy duty diesel engines which will have a direct impact on the environment with potential fuel savings.
