Experimental and numerical study of the adsorption process in a carbon canister
Keywords and Phrases
"Carbon canisters are used in automobiles to reduce evaporative emissions from the fuel system. Predicting the performance of a canister under different conditions can be useful in improving the canister design for efficient operation. In the present study, experiments were set up with fixed-bed carbon canisters to study the process of hydrocarbon adsorption. Time-accurate simulations have also been performed to model the adsorption process. Solutions from the experiment and simulations were compared. The computational fluid dynamics software FLUENT was used to simulate the cases"--Abstract, leaf iii.
