Chapter 3. Examples of Macroscopic Models

Learning Objectives

After completing this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Apply the conservation law to a larger control volume (macro-models).

  • Interpret the resulting mathematical formulation of the conservation law as average values of local properties.

  • Identify additional closures or assumptions needed to complete the model.

  • Simulate batch reactors and batch reactors with simultaneous product removal using MATLAB tools.

  • Understand what is meant by a backmixed system and how it is used to model continuous flow-stirred tank reactors.

  • Model some transport problems in which the transport coefficient concept is used to close the conservation laws.

  • Apply the macroscopic model to a simple separation process ...
