NUMERICAL CALCULATIONS FOR THE ASYMPTOTIC, DIFFUSION DOMINATED MASS-TRANSFER COEFFICIENT IN PACKED BED REACTORS
Description: For deep beds, the effective Sherwood number approaches a proportional relationship to the Peclet number as the Peclet number tends to zero. A sinusoidal periodically constricted tube model for the voids in the bed has been used to predict the constant of proportionality. This constant depends upon the dimensionless ratios of three lengths: the average tube radius, the oscillation amplitude, and wavelength.
