Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Almost all the processes relevant to manufacturing industries (chemical, petrochemical, fertiliser, metallurgical, cement etc.) involve fluid flow in some way. The competitive edge of any manufacturing concern will, therefore, rest on how well these flow processes are designed and operated. Considering the central role of reactors in chemical processes, there is tremendous potential for applying flow-modeling tools to improve reactor engineering.

Computational Flow Modeling for Chemical Reactor Engineering relates the individual aspects of chemical reactor engineering and computational flow modeling in a coherent way to explains the potential of computational flow modeling for reactor engineering research and practice.

This book:
Identifies the major tasks of chemical reactor engineering;
Details computational flow modeling and reviews recent advances, with special emphasis on reactor engineering applications;
Provides guidelines on choosing the most appropriate technique;
Discusses the overall methodology of computational flow modeling for reactor engineering, with the help of numerous examples;
Applies computational flow modeling to the four major reactor types: stirred reactors, bubble column reactors, fluidised bed reactors and fixed bed reactors

About the Author

Vivek V. Ranade leads the Chemical Engineering and Process Development Division of the CSIR - National Chemical Laboratory, India, where he has worked since 1990. His research interests center on process intensification, reactor engineering and modeling of industrial flow processes.

I have recently finished my CFD course, i took a project in modeling of fixed be isothermal reactor and first order reaction to describr a hysrodynamic of a particle during the chemical reactor. i found this book is intresting in this type of science.
