Heat transfer in batch reactors

I need to simulate the heat transfer inside a batch reactor. I wonder if I need to create a domain inside the reactor for that purpose.

Hi @Pedro_Henrique,

Yes, you need to create a domain inside the reactor and use the Conjugate Heat Transfer module to simulate the heat transfer between reactor and the substance inside it.
Would be really nice if you have a CAD geometry or a project link to share with us when you have another question in this project.

Cheers,

Good afternoon Vinicius,

Dude I’m still starting to do CAD. Have you done any similar work?

Att,

Hi @Pedro_Henrique,

Unfortunately I still do not have a similar work about CHT here, but to me that is a good idea for a project to do in the next month :slight_smile:
Here you have 2 complete projects that you can see clarely two domains in the CHT analysis that you will set as well:

  1. Fluid Flow through a Heat Exhanger with Conjugate Heat Transfer
  2. CHT heat exchanger

Please, let us know when you need some help in the course of this project.

Cheers,

Vinícius
