Abstract: A three-dimensional and two-phase flow simulation to predict the dynamic behavior of a fluid catalytic cracking industrial reactor is developed in the present work. This study takes into account heat transfer and chemical reactions. A four-lump model is proposed to represent the catalytic cracking reactions, in which the heavy oil (gas-oil) is converted in gasoline and light gases hydrocarbon groups. The gas acceleration due to molar expansion and a model to describe the undesirable catalyst deactivation by coke deposition in particle surface are considered. The Eulerian description of the phases is used to represent the two-phase flow. A commercial CFD code (Ansys CFX version 11.0) was used. Appropriate functions were implemented in CFX to model the heterogeneous kinetics and catalyst deactivation. Results show non-uniform tendencies inside reactor, emphasizing the importance in use threedimensional models in FCC process predictions.
