Electrostatic Particulate Filter for Nanoparticle Reduction
Future emission legislation for passenger cars (petrol and diesel) and heavy-duty vehicles will also require a reduction in particle numbers in addition to a reduction in particle mass. Conventional filters that combine current levels of porosity with new, low soot-emitting engines are unable to filter nanoparticles with sufficient effectiveness because of the lack of a soot filter cake. the necessary reduction in pore size would lead to greater pressure loss. the Electrostatic Particulate Filter PM-Metalit advanced by Emitec represents a new generation of particulate filters for the automotive industry.

Evaluation of the Combustion Noise of Passenger Car Diesel Engines
Driven by the increasing demand of customers for comfort, the subject of automotive and engine acoustics is rising in its importance in the process of vehicle development. Along with wind and...
Glare Potential of a Laser-based Glare-free High-beam System
The advantage of the glare-free high beam is that this can be permanently active, with oncoming and preceding vehicles are deliberately hidden. Since laser are used as (additional-)beam light...
Simulation of Buckling Instability of Automotive Outer Panels
As the need for weight reduction and cost efficiency becomes ever more present in automotive engineering, decreasing outer panel thicknesses certainly appears on the agenda. This must not come at...
