After completing this chapter, you will be able to:
Apply differential equations of mass transfer to laminar flow with homogeneous and heterogeneous reactions.
Render the equation to a dimensionless form and identify the key dimensionless groups.
Solve the equation by a number of mathematical and computational tools.
Identify two limiting cases of the model, that is, the segregated flow and the plug flow model.
Compare the mesoscopic approach based on the dispersion model with the exact 2-D model, segregated model, and plug flow model.
Examine briefly the temperature effect in a laminar flow reactor and modeling of a turbulent flow reactor.
Reactors under laminar flow conditions are often ...
