This book illustrates how models of chemical reactors are built up in a systematic manner, step by step. The authors also outline how the numerical solution algorithms for reactor models are selected, as well as how computer codes are written for numerical performance, with a focus on MATLAB and Fortran. Examples solved in MATLAB and simulations performed in Fortran are included for demonstration purposes.
Provides the physicochemical fundamentals of reactor modelling
Includes mathematical models for some standard reactor designs as well as numerous examples
Gives readers the tools they need to design a state-of-the-art chemical reactor
