About this product
- DescriptionBridging the gap between the well-kwn techlogical description of gasification and the underlying theoretical understanding, this book covers the latest numerical and semi-empirical models describing interphase phemena in high-temperature conversion processes. Consequently, it focuses on the description of gas-particle reaction systems by state-of-the-art computational models in an integrated, unified form. Special attention is paid to understanding and modeling the interaction between individual coal particles and a surrounding hot gas, including heterogeneous and homogeneous chemical reactions inside the particle on the particle interface and near the interface between the solid and gas phases. While serving the needs of engineers involved in industrial research, development and design in the field of gasification techlogies, this book's in-depth coverage makes it equally ideal for young and established researchers in the fields of thermal sciences and chemical engineering with a focus on heterogeneous and homogeneous reactions.
- Author BiographyPetr A. Nikrityuk is an associate professor at the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering, University of Alberta (UofA), Canada. Before taking his current position at UofA, Petr Nikrityuk was the head of the research group Interphase Phenomena within the Center for Innovation Competence VIRTUHCON at the Technische Universitat Bergakademie Freiberg (TUBAF), Germany. He studied mechanical engineering at the Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI), where he obtained his PhD on the topic of mathematical modeling of thermal processes. Before taking his research group leader position in Freiberg, Petr Nikrityuk worked as software developer in the field of computational fluid dynamics and as a post doc fellow in the Institute for Aerospace Engineering at the Dresden University of Technology. Bernd Meyer is the Director of the Department of the Energy Process Engineering and Chemical Engineering at the Technische Universitat Bergakademie Freiberg (TUBAF), Germany. Having obtained his academic degrees from TUBAF, he spent most of his career working in research and development in gasification and power plant technologies before taking up the appointment as a professor at TUBAF, Chair of Energy Process Engineering and Thermal Waste Treatment (EVT). He has been a member of the Saxonian Academy of Sciences, and Rector of the TUBAF since 2008. Prof. Meyer is author and coauthor of more than 90 patents in the field of gasification and related technologies.
