Chapter 4. Examples of Mesoscopic Models

Learning Objectives

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 ...
