How to Model Sparging in COMSOL Multiphysics®
Sparging, the process of bubbling a gas into a liquid, is seen most notably in carbonation, such as for soda and seltzer water. This mass transfer process can be modeled in COMSOL Multiphysics®.
Optimizing Thermal Processes in Carbon Manufacturing with Simulation
A guest blogger from SGL Carbon GmbH demonstrates how his organization uses heat transfer simulation to optimize thermal processes in carbon manufacturing.
Modeling a Tubular Reactor for Optimized Polymer Manufacturing
Chemical engineers can model tubular reactors to optimize them for specific manufacturing and production processes, such as for the polymerization of polyester, as this example shows.
Analyzing Fine Chemical Production in Plate Reactors
Batch reactors, continuous reactors, plate reactors, oh my. Here, we discuss analyzing the fine chemical production process in a plate reactor using chemical modeling.
Keynote Video: Moving Beyond Simulation for Biopharma Applications
At Amgen, researchers build simulation applications for biopharmaceutical uses, such as researching biological and synthetic drugs. Learn more in this blog post featuring their keynote talk.
Modeling Adsorption at Surfaces in COMSOL Multiphysics®
What is adsorption? Learn the theory behind this chemical engineering phenomenon as well as how to model the process at surfaces in the COMSOL® software.
Evaluating the Performance of a Steam Reformer with COMSOL®
To design a steam reformer for hydrogen production, you need to couple mass, energy, and flow equations. The Chemical Reaction Engineering Module can account for this true multiphysics problem.
