SERB Sponsored Online Workshop on Modelling of Multiphase Reactor Engineering by NIT Calicut [Oct 25-31]: Register by Oct 22

The Workshop on Modelling of Multiphase Reactor Engineering: Fundamentals and Industrial Applications is organised by NIT Calicut from Oct 25-31, 2021.

About the Organiser

National Institute of Technology Calicut, formerly Regional Engineering College Calicut, is a public technical university and an institute of national importance governed by the NIT Act passed by the Parliament of India. The campus is situated 22 kilometres north east of Kozhikode, on the Kozhikode–Mukkam Road.

About the Workshop

Multiphase reactors are found in many diverse applications such as the manufacture of petroleum-based fuels, commodity and speciality chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and the production of polymers.

The understanding of complex fluid dynamic behaviours in the multiphase reactors has been studied through computational flow modelling.

This workshop provides state-of-the-art modelling methods for various multiphase reactors in terms of fundamental as well as applications such as petroleum, chemical, biological and thermal processes and mineral processing.

Objectives

  • Identify the different types of multiphase reactors involving gas-liquid and gas-liquid-solid flows such as bubble column reactor, loop reactor, stirred reactor, packed bed reactor, fluidised bed reactor and their operating parameters and various industrial applications.
  • Understand fundamentals of multiphase reactors in terms of fluid dynamics, flow regimes, mixing, and mass transfer;
  • Have a knowledge about advanced modelling methods of multiphase reactor including Eulerian-Eulerian approach, Eulerian Lagragian approach, and Volume of Fluid approach;
  • Design and scale-up aspects of multiphase reactor for industrial applications such as petroleum refinery-FCC, chemical process, biological process, mineral processing, thermal process of pyrolysis, combustion and gasification through CFD modelling;
