‘ponte’ Vecchio: Bridging Laboratory Chemical Kinetics to Industrial Scale Reactors – 2nd edition
May 24 - May 25
Kinetic modelling includes fundamental aspects such as stoichiometry, kinetics and thermodynamics in the analysis of chemical reactor behaviour. Microkinetic models help to consolidate the fundamental information about a catalytic reaction.
Computational Fluid Dynamics
Coupling such microkinetic models with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models allows for a reliable extrapolation to larger, industrially more relevant scales where idealities of fluid dynamics are no longer guaranteed and may exert a significant impact on the reactor behaviour and product yields.
