Description

Computational fluid dynamics, CFD, has become an indispensable tool for many engineers. This book gives an introduction to CFD simulations of turbulence, mixing, reaction, combustion and multiphase flows. The emphasis on understanding the physics of these flows helps the engineer to select appropriate models to obtain reliable simulations. Besides presenting the equations involved, the basics and limitations of the models are explained and discussed. The book combined with tutorials, project and power-point lecture notes (all available for download) forms a complete course. The reader is given hands-on experience of drawing, meshing and simulation. The tutorials cover flow and reactions inside a porous catalyst, combustion in turbulent non-premixed flow, and multiphase simulation of evaporation spray respectively. The project deals with design of an industrial-scale selective catalytic reduction process and allows the reader to explore various design improvements and apply best practice guidelines in the CFD simulations.show more

About Bengt Andersson

Bengt Andersson is a Professor in Chemical Engineering at Chalmers University, Sweden. His research has focused on experimental studies and modelling of mass and heat transfer in various chemical reactors ranging from automotive catalysis to three phase flow in chemical reactors. Ronnie Andersson is an Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering at Chalmers University. He obtained his PhD at Chalmers in 2005 and from 2005 until 2010 he worked as consultant at Epsilon HighTech as a specialist in CFD simulations of combustion and multiphase flows. His research projects involve physical modelling, fluid dynamic simulations and experimental methods. Love Hakansson works as Consultant at Engineering Data Resources (EDR) in Oslo, Norway. His research has been in mass transfer in turbulent boundary layers. He is now working with simulations of single and multiphase flows. Mikael Mortensen obtained his PhD at Chalmers University in 2005 in turbulent mixing with chemical reactions. After two years of postdoctoral work at the University of Sydney, he is now working with fluid dynamics at the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment in Lillehammer, Norway. Rahman Sudiyo is a Lecturer at the University of Gadjah Mada in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. He received his PhD at Chalmers University in 2006. His research has been in multiphase flow. Berend van Wachem is a Senior Lecturer at Imperial College London, UK. His research projects involve multiphase flow modelling, ranging from understanding the behaviour of turbulence on the scale of individual particles, to the large-scale modelling of gas-solid and gas-liquid flows.show more
