Computational Fluid Dynamics In Chemical Reaction Engineering

Tuesday, October 18, 2011: 3:15 PM
200 B (Minneapolis Convention Center)

Contributions are solicited for this session, which focus on approaches to chemical reactor design and modeling using computational fluid dynamics. The theme of the session is the improved design and analysis of chemical reactors, by a more realistic description of the fluid flow within them. We encourage papers that focus on novel applications of CFD for chemical reactor design, scale-up and optimization. Contributions can range from fundamental studies to improvement of CFD models and applications to industrial processes.
