Abstract

"The carbon canister is an important component of an automobile fuel system in controlling the evaporative emission of gasoline vapor. A careful study of the adsorption/desorption processes in a carbon canister can provide useful guidance in optimizing canister design. In the present work, multi-dimensional, time-accurate simulations of adsorption/desorption processes in carbon canisters have been conducted using Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software FLUENT, with User Defined Functions (UDF) developed and added to the software."--Abstract, page iii.
