Coupled simulations of fluid flow, transport and reactions in multiphase microreactors. Simulations accurately capture mass transport features analysis of transport phenomena deen pdf the segmented flow.
Predicted mass transfer enhancement effect in the presence of reactions. Developed new physical insights to enhance design of segmented flow microreactors. The simulations implemented in OpenFOAM accurately capture the circulation patterns and micron-scale wetting film of the segmented flow. The accurate prediction of the interfacial concentration discontinuity is shown to depend on the local Peclet number. Mass transport in the segmented flow system is shown to be a two-regime process, dominated first by convection and then by diffusion.
