MATHEMATICAL MODELING OF CATALYTIC CONVERTER LIGHTOFF. PART II: MODEL VERIFICATION BY ENGINE-DYNAMOMETER EXPERIMENTS.

Journal Article

A transient mathematical model has been developed which describes the behavior of packed-bed catalytic converters during warmup. Model predictions agree very well with the results of engine-dynamometer experiments for three Pt-alumina catalysts of widely different properties, thus demonstrating the validity of the model.
