Oxygen mass transfer
I am trying to model the mixing of oxygen and water in a mixing vessel. I am considering 2 phases and 3 components. The liquid phase is a mixture of water and dissolved oxygen, and the gas phase is pure oxygen. I would like to include the mass transfer from pure oxygen (gas phase) to dissolved oxygen (liquid phase), but cannot find any tutorial which indicates how to do this. The tutorials I have related to mixing vessels do not consider the mass transfer between the gas and liquid phases.
Can anyone help with this or give any hint?
