Xcelerate reaction engineering: combining process modeling and CFD & DEM

On-Demand Webinar

Simcenter multiphysics CFD and DEM simulations help maximize the operational efficiency of chemical reactors

The design of chemical reactors is always aimed at maximizing reaction efficiency and yield while minimizing raw material consumption, energy and pollutants/byproducts, to minimize total operational cost. Multiphysics 3-D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations can improve the reactor design and optimize operations by modeling all relevant phenomena, including fluid flow through complex geometries, heat transfer, surface and bulk interactions, particle interactions, and more.

In this webinar, Thomas Eppinger, Dipl.-Ing. (Siemens DI) and Nico Jurtz, Dipl.-Ing. (TU Berlin) will discuss how advanced simulation methods (including CFD and Discrete Element Modeling with Simcenter) can be applied to design, validation and scale-up in reaction engineering.

You will learn:

  • Simulation for dispersion and residence time analysis
  • How to couple CFD simulation with process modeling tools for reactor and unit operations analysis
