95 Modeling and Analysis of Chemical Reactors

Monday, November 14, 2016: 8:00 AM - 10:30 AM
Franciscan D (Hilton San Francisco Union Square)
This session will highlight recent advances in experiments and modeling of reaction systems and reactors with emphasis on spatio-temporal patterns and deliberate unsteady state operation of reactors. The scope of papers can include observation, prediction and analysis of multiple steady-states, flow instabilities, periodic/quasi-periodic or aperiodic spatial, temporal or spatio-temporal pattern formation, micro or global kinetic modeling of specific reaction systems, modeling and analysis complex catalytic and multi-phase reactors, and the development of new analysis, measurement or simulation techniques.
