Bioreactors are the workhorses of biopharmaceutical operations. Engineers must understand their operation and design to prevent insufficient mixing, poor oxygen transfer to the media, and improper loading of nutrients and cell products, which can cause product inhomogeneity and impact the cell culture. An approach that involves computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulation can enable better understanding, less experimentation, and accelerated in-silico bioreactor characterization.
This webinar details a CFD approach to bioreactor characterization for laboratory- and commercial-scale bioreactors or mixing vessels. Based on Siemens Simcenter STAR-CCM+, it covers the simulation of complex Eulerian multiphase flows, including population balance. Engineers and simulation experts in the bioprocessing and biotechnology industry can benefit from this one-hour presentation.
You will learn:
- The importance of understanding the operation and design of bioreactors
- How to apply CFD simulations to lab- and commercial-scale bioreactors or mixing vessels
