Loop Reactors - Revolutionizing Reaction Engineering
AIChE Annual Meeting
Monday, November 14, 2016 - 10:00am to 12:30pm
After a systematic literature review, it was found that computational fluid dynamic approach is the new addition to research domain of the loop reactors. Modelling and simulation using various reaction models and turbulence models are a new trend among researchers and various papers have been published on the same. Recently, process control studies have also been explored briefly in context of loop reactors, however this field needs more attention. Thermal hydraulics study on loop reactors is a vast field with numerous aspects and extensive research is being performed on the same. Nuclear research and techniques are focused on thermal hydraulics to a large extent and study of the same in loop reactors has immense scope. Present work is a critical analysis of various design factors which elucidate multiple aspects of loop reactors.
