The multi-scale nature of reacting flows makes their simulation particularly challenging. In the different chapters of this volume, key methods are presented which allow bridging scales and running simulations more efficiently without significant loss of accuracy. This volume focuses on single phase flow applications.

The scope of the volume is to present key methods to bridge scales in the simulation of reacting single phase flows. Both an academic and industrial audience is expected, the latter having a particular interest in the simulation of industrial scale devices.

Grouping key methods to bridge scales in the simulation of reacting flows looking at the different aspects of such flows (transport phenomena, reactions). Illustration of the methods on a variety of applications and contribution of key groups in this field.

Key Features

Juray De Wilde Serial Volume Editor

Juray De Wilde received his Ph.D in Chemical Engineering from the Ghent University, Belgium, in 2001. He did post-doctoral work at the Ghent University and was post-doc research associate at the Chemical Engineering Department of Princeton University, NJ. In 2005 he became associate professor of Chemical Engineering at the Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium, where he received his tenure in 2008 and became professor in 2012. Since 2011 he is the head of the Materials and Process Engineering Unit (IMAP) and since 2015 the vice-president of the doctoral school for process engineering for the Walloon Region of Belgium (GEPROC). In 2015 he was visiting professor at the University of Colorado (Boulder) and since 2015 he is visiting faculty at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) of the US Department of Energy through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) of the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU). Dr. De Wilde published more than 40 papers in international journals, served as a member of various scientific committees and collaborated with numerous companies via research projects. His research interests and expertise include dynamic methods for catalytic kinetics, the modeling and simulation of single- and multiphase reactors, and process intensification, in particular for fixed and fluidized bed processes.
