In order to improve the performance of the exhaust after treatment system and keep reasonable complexity, the number of the used devices is reduced by enhancing wall flow particulate filters with a catalytic functionality, like selective catalytic reduction in diesel or three way catalysis in gasoline vehicles. In this case the solid matrix of the filtering media consists from inert grains and active grains. For the simulation of such devices, effective 1D models are regularly used, because they are relatively simple and fast in comparison to higher dimensional models, while reproducing most of the experimentally observed phenomena with sufficient accuracy. The reduction of the complexity in the modeling, however, is achieved by introducing many simplifying assumptions. As it will be seen in this presentation, 1D models do not always reproduce detailed 3D simulations...
