Fundamentals of Reaction Engineering
by Rafael Kandiyoti
Publisher: BookBoon 2009
Number of pages: 112
This is an introductory text covering the basic elements of reactor design. The focus is on simple flow patterns. Material and energy balances have been derived for continuous stirred tank reactors and tubular flow reactors, assuming plug flow. Non-ideal flow is briefly discussed. The important case of exothermic-reversible reactions has been discussed in the context of staged reactors, with interstage or cold-shot cooling. The analysis of heat and mass transfer to/from catalyst pellets in fixed bed catalytic reactors has been introduced, emphasizing the formulation of global reaction rate expressions. Different ways of modeling FBCRs has been described.

In this book, the authors apply some set of fuzzy techniques to chemical industry problems such as finding the right proportion of raw mix to control pollution, to study flow rates, and to find out the better quality of products.

The goal of this special issue is to provide a forum for recent developments in theory, state-of-the-art experiments, and computations on the interaction between flow and transfer in single and multi-phase flow, and from small scales to large scales.
