|Title:||Use of Different Numerical Solution Approaches for a Three-Phase Slurry Catalytic Reactor Model|
de Toledo, ECV
|Abstract:||In this paper two different numerical approaches are used to find out the steady-state solution for multiphase chemical reactors. Such systems are distributed parameter systems and the steady-state formulation problem leads to a system of nonlinear algebraic equations. The problem is to solve the equations in a robust way so that reliable predictions can be made. Bearing this in mind in this work two methods are implement and their performances compared, to know the Orthogonal Collocation Method e the Finite Volume Method. The results show that in spite of good qualitative agreement in the predictions the latter approaches in more suitable to have a direct solution of the steady-state model of the reactor.|
