With the increasingly wide spread use of catalytic converters for meeting exhaust emission regulations considerably attention is currently being directed towards improving their performance. An attractive alternative to experimental analysis is computational modelling. The paper shows that the equations that govern the behaviour of catalysts can be solved using a commercial CFD code.
