Process intensification of multiphase reactors (Id 227)

Especially, trickle bed reactors are advantageous, due to the high residence time, which compensate low diffusion rates. Examples are hydrogenations, aminations or oxidation of glucose.
Recently, a new multiphase reactor was developed to intensify the mass transfer by the superposition of rotation an inclination. To investigate the innovative reactor concept a modelling approach for the space-time-yield is necessary.
In the framework of a student thesis a reactor-particle model will be investigated via simulation studies. Additionally, further model improvements will be considered as the incorporation of heat balances. The simulations have to be executed in the MATLAB environment.
