Abstract SIMPLE-C algorithm and Arrhenius form of reaction model were employed to simulate the three-dimensional laminar flow field and the chemical reaction in a cylindrical methanol reformer under steam reforming. The effects of geometrical and thermo-fluid parameters on the CO and CO 2 productions as well as the heat and mass transfer in a cylindrical methanol reformer with a constant-volume catalyst bed will be observed in the present study. Low CO concentration in hydrogen-rich gas denotes… CONTINUE READING
