Chemical Reaction Engineering Module

Chemical Reaction Engineering Module
ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING: A filter system for a diesel engine includes a soot layer that builds up at the filter walls and is subsequently oxidized by both catalytic and noncatalytic reactions in the reactor volume and on a moving surface. All reactions are temperature and material transport dependent. The model shows the carbon dioxide concentration in the filter.

The Chemical Reaction Engineering Module is optimized for the modeling of reactors, filtration and separation units, and other equipment common in the chemical and similar industries. It is specifically designed to easily couple fluid flow and mass and energy transport to chemical reaction kinetics. Firstly, the Chemical Reaction Engineering Module uses reaction formulas to create models of reacting systems. It can then solve the material and energy balances for such systems, including the reaction kinetics, where the composition and temperature vary with time, space, or both.

The Chemical Reaction Engineering Module melds seamlessly with the power of COMSOL Multiphysics for coupled as well as equation-based modeling. This allows for the inclusion of arbitrary expressions, functions, and source terms in the material property, transport, and reaction kinetic equations. You also have access to a variety of thermodynamic and physical property data through the CHEMKIN® file import feature and CAPE-OPEN interface.
