After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Understand how mesoscopic models result from a cross-sectional averaging of differential models.
Identify additional parameters that result upon averaging.
Explain the meaning of the dispersion coefficient.
Model and solve reactor models using the dispersion concept.
Understand the usefulness of the transient response data to determine the dispersion coefficient.
Understand the classical work of the Taylor model for axial dispersion in laminar flows.
Model and solve cocurrent and countercurrent mass exchangers using the dispersion coefficient for each of the phases.
Mesoscopic models use one spatial coordinate ...
