After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Apply the conservation law to a control volume that is differential only in the main flow direction.
Formulate mesoscopic models used in the analysis of mass transfer processes in tubular or channel flows.
Identify additional closures or assumptions to be made to complete the model.
Formulate and solve the simplest problem in mesoscale analysis— namely, solid dissolution from a wall.
Analyze tubular flow reactors and understand the model simplification using the concept of plug flow.
Understand the concept of dispersion and show how the plug flow model can be corrected using this parameter.
Set up models for systems with two flowing ...
