Final Report - Advanced Hydraulic and Mass Transfer Models for Distillation Column Optimization and Design
Final Report - Advanced Hydraulic and Mass Transfer Models for Distillation Column Optimization and Design The project successfully developed a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) based simulation of the hydrodynamics of flow in a commercial structured packing element. This result fulfilled the prime objective of the research program. The simulation utilized commercial CFD code marketed by Fluent Inc. in combination with a novel graphical interface developed by Oak Ridge National Lab. The end product will allow the design of next generation column internals without the need for extensive experimental validation and will expand the fundamental understanding of the vapor-liquid contacting process.
