The FVV project „AdBlue Deposits“ investigated the interaction of AdBlue sprays with hot tail pipe walls, the resulting wall film formation and the precipitation of solid deposits from liquid film. Besides experimental investigations, new models for urea decomposition, spray/wall interaction, heat transfer and an approach to substantially speed-up 3D-CFD simulations were developed. The work was supported from 01/2017 – 04/2019 by BMWi through the AiF based on a decision by the German Bundestag. 13.01.2020
