After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Define the concept of a backmixed unit and the assumptions involved in it.
Perform steady state and transient analysis of a backmixed unit.
Show that transient analysis is useful to assess the level of mixing in the system.
Couple backmixed units to form a compartmental model for a reactor or for a large-scale system.
Use compartmental models in engineering analysis of complex systems.
Formulate macroscopic models for two-phase systems.
This chapter elaborates on the principles of macroscopic modeling introduced in Chapter 3 and shows additional applications. As described earlier, in macroscopic analysis, the control volume ...
