1.1.3 Introduction: A tubular reactor

Course subject(s) 1. Microbalances in Transport Phenomena

Welcome to the first chapter of Advanced Transport Phenomena.

During the first week, you will learn about microbalances in transport phenomena. Therefore, the first chapter will briefly summarise the mass and component balances and will introduce the use of microbalances, by explaining the model of a tubular plug flow reactor. A plug flow is a simple model of the velocity profile of a fluid flowing in a pipe, for which the velocity is assumed to be constant across any cross-section of the pipe perpendicular to the axis of the pipe.

Go to the next section to watch the first spark and to be inspired by the world of transport phenomena!
