Chemical Reactor Modeling closes the gap between Chemical Reaction Engineering and Fluid Mechanics. The second edition consists of two volumes: Volume 1: Fundamentals. Volume 2: Chemical Engineering Applications In volume 1 most of the fundamental theory is presented. A few numerical model simulation application examples are given to elucidate the link between theory and applications. In volume 2 the chemical reactor equipment to be modeled are described. Several engineering models are introduced and discussed. A survey of the frequently used numerical methods, algorithms and schemes is provided. A few practical engineering applications of the modeling tools are presented and discussed. The working principles of several experimental techniques employed in order to get data for model validation are outlined. The monograph is based on lectures regularly taught in the fourth and fifth years graduate courses in transport phenomena and chemical reactor modeling and in a post graduate course in modern reactor modeling at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Department of Chemical Engineering, Trondheim, Norway. The objective of the book is to present the fundamentals of the single-fluid and multi-fluid models for the analysis of single and multiphase reactive flows in chemical reactors with a chemical reactor engineering rather than mathematical bias. Organized into 13 chapters, it combines theoretical aspects and practical applications and covers some of the recent research in several areas of chemical reactor engineering. This book contains a survey of the modern literature in the field of chemical reactor modeling.

This book closes the gap between Chemical Reaction Engineering and Fluid Mechanics. It provides the basic theory for momentum, heat and mass transfer in reactive systems. Numerical methods for solving the resulting equations as well as the interplay between physical and numerical modes are discussed. The book is written using the standard terminology of this community. It is intended for researchers and engineers who want to develop their own codes, or who are interested in a deeper insight into commercial CFD codes in order to derive consistent extensions and to overcome "black box" practice. It can also serve as a textbook and reference book.

Computational fluid dynamics, CFD, has become an indispensable tool for many engineers. This book gives an introduction to CFD simulations of turbulence, mixing, reaction, combustion and multiphase flows. The emphasis on understanding the physics of these flows helps the engineer to select appropriate models to obtain reliable simulations. Besides presenting the equations involved, the basics and limitations of the models are explained and discussed. The book combined with tutorials, project and power-point lecture notes (all available for download) forms a complete course. The reader is given hands-on experience of drawing, meshing and simulation. The tutorials cover flow and reactions inside a porous catalyst, combustion in turbulent non-premixed flow, and multiphase simulation of evaporation spray respectively. The project deals with design of an industrial-scale selective catalytic reduction process and allows the reader to explore various design improvements and apply best practice guidelines in the CFD simulations.

This textbook covers computational fluid dynamics simulation using COMSOL Multiphysics® Modeling Software in chemical engineering applications. In the volume, the COMSOL Multiphysics package is introduced and applied to solve typical problems in chemical reactors, transport processes, fluid flow, and heat and mass transfer. Inspired by the difficulties of introducing the use of COMSOL Multiphysics software during classroom time, the book incorporates the author’s experience of working with undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students to make the book user friendly and that, at the same time, addresses typical examples within the subjects covered in the chemical engineering curriculum. Real-world problems require the use of simulation and optimization tools, and this volume shows how COMSOL Multiphysics software can be used for that purpose. Key features: • Includes over 500 step-by-step screenshots • Shows the graphical user interface of COMSOL, which does not require any programming effort • Provides chapter-end problems for extensive practice along with solutions • Includes actual examples of chemical reactors, transport processes, fluid flow, and heat and mass transfer This book is intended for students who want or need more help to solve chemical engineering assignments using computer software. It can also be used for computational courses in chemical engineering. It will also be a valuable resource for professors, research scientists, and practicing engineers.
