Abstract
The exhaust pollution has become one of the important problems of environment pollution with applications in automobile industry, and the exhausted muffler has been paid attention to improve the performance of engines. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) method was used to explore the aerodynamic performance of the muffler. Resistance muffler research relates with the fields of acoustics, fluid dynamics, heat transfer and mechanism design. The project report simulates the field by numerical method with Cosmos Flow and analyses the effect which the internal flow field has on the performance of the muffler. With this method the pressure distribution in the muffler is simulated and the pressure loss is predicted for the structure modification. The experiment results verify that the assembly performance of the muffler modified is better than the original muffler.
