[1] Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands
[2] Shell Global International Solutions, Den Haag, The Netherlands

Mutually soluble-solvents can improve the ultimate recovery in conventional reservoirs. Initially, the solvent moves with the imbibing aqueous phase into the reservoir. However, upon contact with oil, diffusion occurs and the solvent is transported in the oleic phase. Through the ... Read More

Design Simulations of a General Purpose Research Micro Reactor for Methane Conversion to Syngas.

[1]NASA - Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, AL, USA

All spacecraft systems must be minimized with respect to mass, power, and volume. Here, we focus on current efforts to improve system efficiency and reliability for water separation systems to be used on crewed vehicles. These development efforts combine sub-scale systems testing and ... Read More

Use of COMSOL Multiphysics® Software for Physics Laboratory Exercises

H. van Halewijn [1],
[1] Fontys Hogeschool, Applied Physics, Eindhoven, Netherlands

COMSOL Multiphysics® is used to simulate thermal flow experiments at out University for Applied Physics. Students have to measure thermal flow problems and verify the measurements with detailed simulations. The desired accuracy is 5% or less. The presentation will cover 3 laboratory ... Read More

The Simulation of Flow and Reduction of NO in a Heterogeneous Reactor.

O. Śliczniuk [1], B. Olejnik [1],
[1] Wrocław University of Technology, Faculty of Chemistry, Department of Chemical Engineering, Wrocław, Poland

Nitrogen oxides are one of the more dangerous ingredients contaminating the atmosphere. They are considered to be almost ten times more harmful than carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide several times. A whole range of photochemical reactions involving nitrogen oxides are responsible for ... Read More

Thermal Characterization of a Chemical Reactor Coupling COMSOL and ModeFrontier

N. Pacheco[1], D. Pavone[1], K. Surla[1], E. Schaer[2], and J. Houzelot[2]
[1]IFP-Lyon, France
[2]LRGP-ENSIC, France

For Hydrogen production purpose from bio-ethanol, IFP set up a pilot reactor that can work at high temperature (1000°C) and high pressure (20 bar). Experiments show that this reactor has a specific thermal behavior that should be modeled in addition to chemical and hydrodynamics to ... Read More

填埋场植被对甲烷氧化和释放的模拟分析 new

卞荣星 [1],
[1] 同济大学

目前,很少有模型来描绘植被通对填埋场覆盖土甲烷传输、氧化和释放的影响。本研究的目的是利用模型分析的方法来分析植被对填埋场覆盖体甲烷传输、氧化和释放的影响。模型主要考察了植物关键生理特性如根结构、植物释氧强度、根长度、植物蒸腾速率以及环境因素如覆盖土初始含水率、环境温度等对甲烷氧化的影响。模型研究结果将有助于理解填埋场植被覆盖区甲烷释放机制以及选择合理填埋场管理方式减少温室气体排放。 本研究运用多孔介质稀物质传递、Richarcd 方程、达西定律、热对流等模块分析了植被覆盖条件下填埋场覆盖土中水、热、气传输耦合甲烷氧化 ... Read More
