An example of simulation of particle formation in the exhaust of a vehicle.

The results are obtained by coupling Code_Saturne (hot mixture jet) with an aerosol sub model developped at CEREA , the Modal Aerosol Model ("MAM"), involving different chemical species (90 variables).

The figures represent some example of concentration of different species that can be formed in the plume.
