Tubular Reactor with Non-Isothermal Cooling Jacket

Model ID: 67

This tutorial example is very educational in explaining the PDE interface. It couples heat and mass balances to reversible reaction kinetics. It is also a good example of scaling equations so as to create nice modeling geometries of systems with large aspect ratios.

In a tubular gas reactor, chemical reactions take place in a stream of gas that carries reactants from the inlet to the outlet. Mass and energy transport occur through a convection-diffusion and convection-conduction processes. The model also includes a cooling effect from the outside of the cylindrical reactor.

This model was built using the following:
