Transport Phenomena Coupled by Chemical Reactions in Methane Reforming Ducts
J. Yuan, X. LV, D. Yue and B. Sundén
Mass, heat and momentum transport processes are strongly coupled with catalytic chemical reactions in a methane steam reforming duct. In this paper, a three-dimensional calculation method is developed to simulate and analyze reforming reactions of methane, and the effects on various transport processes in a steam reforming duct. The results show that the design and operating parameters grouped as characteristic ratios have significant effects on the transport phenomena.
