Abstract

The catalytic converter serves a crucial function in mitigating vehicle emissions by effectively limiting the release of dangerous pollutants into the atmosphere. Nevertheless, the inclusion of a catalytic converter inside the exhaust system has a discernible effect on the emission of exhaust gases from internal combustion engines. The proposed design aims to enhance the fluid flow rate in the nanoparticles based catalytic converter by improving upon the existing monolith design, surpassing the capabilities of conventional designs. The conventional and enhanced models are designed using computer-aided design (CAD) software and subsequently evaluated using the ANSYS software, specifically employing the FLUENT solver. The flow results are shown, including a comparison between the conventional design and the newly enhanced design. The proposed design incorporating shape modification offers enhanced fluid flow capabilities compared to the standard approach.
