A three-dimensional mathematical model has been developed for the simulation of flow, temperature and concentration fields in the radiation section of industrial scale steam cracking units. The model takes into account turbulence–chemistry interactions through the Eddy Dissipation Concept (EDC) model and makes use of Detailed Reaction Kinetics (DRK), which(More)
A unique normalized radial pressure profile characterizes the bed of a gas-solid vortex reactor over a range of particle densities and sizes, solid capacities, and gas flow rates: 950–1240 kg/m 3 , 1–2 mm, 2 kg to maximum solids capacity, and 0.4–0.8 Nm 3 /s (corresponding to gas injection velocities of 55–110 m/s), respectively. The combined momentum(More)
