Choose the most appropriate modeling approach for reactors

The efficient operation and design of any reactor depends on the know-how regarding the chemical reaction and the hydrodynamics inside the reactor.

The efficient operation and design of any reactor depends on the know-how regarding the chemical reaction and the hydrodynamics inside the reactor. Mathematical models are developed to understand these complicated phenomena. Model analysis is carried out to understand the influence of various input parameters on the composition of products and the hydrodynamics inside the reactor. As shown in FIG. 1, such analysis, along with experimental investigations, plays an important role in the design and optimization of a commercial reactor. Fig. 1. A schematic representation of approach to reactor development. Various approaches to modeling reactors ha
