Modeling of the Melting Process in an AdBlue Tank

This master thesis is covering the modeling of the melting process in a tank filled with AdBlue. Due to AdBlue freezing at temperatures below -11 C there is a need to add heat to be able to secure dosing in all situations. A rig for simulating freezing conditions is created with the possibility to store AdBlue in temperatures down to -40 C. Temperatures are measured in and around the tank containing AdBlue and in the equipment used for adding heat. Two models are created from physical relations to estimate the mass of AdBlue melted, a static temperature model and a dynamic temperature model. The static model shows good results when calibrated at this specific setup and is very easy to use. The dynamic temperature model is more advanced but describes the real physical system better without external calibration.
