Three-dimensional Eulerian simulations of gas–liquid flows in a cylindrical bubble column were performed in order to evaluate the flow pattern in the heterogeneous flow regime. Simulations were conducted numerically by the finite element method using a commercial CFX code (v.12.0) and an analvailable online 25 April 2012
Three-dimensional gas-liquid simulations in a cylindrical bubble reactor with an external loop were performed. The effects of average bubble size, bubble size distribution and gas inlet plate geometry were evaluated. The population balance models of Luo and Svendsen [6] and Prince and Blanch [9] were used in order to simulate the breakup and coalescence(More)
The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) is a geological repository for disposal of U.S. defense transuranic radioactive waste. Built and operated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), it is located in the Permian age salt beds in southeastern New Mexico at a depth of 655 m. Performance assessment for the repository's compliance with the 10,000-year(More)
