The performance of a particle filter is primarily determined by its media. Today’s filter media is a composition of different layers known as MULTIGRADE or MICROGRADE media. Selecting the right combination of layers requires a lot of experience. Recent progress now enables the simulation of complex structures to support the development by adding information about the media utilization. However, published results point out that the local inhomogeneity of the fiber structure plays an important… Expand
