Simulation of Filter Media with GeoDict

A. Wiegmann and S. Rief Fraunhofer-Institut für Techno- und Wirtschaftsmathematik, Kaiserslautern, Germany


Virtual material design is one of the main research topics at
Fraunhofer ITWM. Algorithms for the computer generation of textile
structures and the computation of structural properties like pore size
distributions and flow resistivities, even to the point of the
simulation of the entire filtration behavior, have been developed. Made
available by the software GeoDict / Filter-Dict, these algorithms help
to investigate and to better understand filter media. The
presentation covers an introduction to the approach and illustrates
its potential by selected simulation results.
