Chemical Reactors

  • Roger Prud’homme
Part of the Fluid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 94)


Chemical engineering is a very important field with its own specific methods. Classical methods of analyzing and modeling aerodynamics and combustion are often not the most suitable methods for solving problems associated with chemical reactors, the subject of this chapter. For example, the deterministic and probabilistic population balance equations given in Sect. 4.10 are used instead of the general balance equation of Sect. 4.4. The latter is too refined for such problems, and it can be difficult to use to interpret experimental results.
