Water gas shift reaction source term in cfx
i try to working about a steam methane reforming reaction into a channel with a catalytic wall and for the species eqation, i have a source term relative to water gas shift reaction, it's a volumetric source term.
my question is how can i know the expression of this source term used by CFX 11 ?
because i study wich i follow use the cfx but i don't know the expression for this term
Help me please
Thanks before :)

Do you have a CFX model which you are trying to figure out how it works or are you trying to do a new simulation?

Hi ghorrocks thank you for your answer
in fact i haven't a CFX model, i try to do a new simulation by following some results generated by a CFX model, and in this article it is not mentionned the expression of the volumetric source term, when i contacted the author, he told me that he used the ANSYS expression for the water gas shift reaction source term.
When i searched in the manual of the version 11 i didn't find this term
i can give you the equations system if that is necessary
Thanks before.
