Abstracts : Muffler design is traditionally a trial and error process. This paper describes the flow analysis of a reactive muffler using CFD simulation in order to improve its performance by reducing the back pressure created on the engine. The back pressure of the muffler is computed from CFD simulation. The CFD analysis is done to avoid the tedious experimentation. The flow simulation is carried out using k-ε turbulent model as it is most suitable for turbulent flows having less converging time. Total four cases were analyzed including the base model muffler. Thus three modifications were done in muffler geometry. The modification with reduced baffle spacing produced least back pressure with reduction in back pressure by 8.59%.
