### Probability Density Function (PDF) simulation of turbulent reactive gas-solid flow in a riser

(2009) CHEMICAL ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY. 32(3). p.492-500- abstract
- A hybrid Lagrangian-Eulerian methodology is developed for the numerical simulation of turbulent reactive gas-solid flow. The SO2-NOx Adsorption Process (SNAP) in a riser reactor with dilute gas-solid flow is taken as a test case. A three-dimensional time-dependent simulation is performed. By using the transported composition PDF method [1], modeling of the mean chemical source term and mass transfer terms in the gas-solid flow model equations is no longer needed. A notional particle-based Monte-Carlo algorithm is used to solve the transported composition PDF equations. A Finite-Volume technique is used to calculate the hydrodynamic fields from the Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes (RANS) equations combined with the k-epsilon turbulence model for the gas phase and the Kinetic Theory of Granular Flow (KTGF) for the solid phase [2]. The newly developed hybrid solution technique is tested with the SNAP chemistry that has a total of 13 scalars (i.e., 5 gas phase components and 8 solid phase species) for which the composition fields of the reactive species are calculated. A good agreement between simulated and experimental gas-outlet composition of a demonstration unit is obtained.
