After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
State the Stefan-Maxwell constitutive model for multicomponent mass transfer.
Develop a MATLAB implementation for multicomponent diffusion with reaction.
Apply the model to heterogeneous reaction based on the film model.
Use the model with appropriate determinacy condition for non-reacting systems.
Understand the concept of the diffusivity matrix for multicomponent systems.
The goal of this chapter is to revisit the transport laws for multicomponent systems and to demonstrate tools by which multicomponent models are solved. In particular, the numerical solution of Stefan-Maxwell model is introduced and applied to many ...
