Cfd simulation of ethanol steam reforming for marine stirling engine
 
(by Alon Davidy, PhD, All About CFD... blogger )

External Stirling combustion engine, has benefits over internal combustion engine due to his ability to remain completely sealed and its silent operation. It requires an external heat source for operation. These characteristics make this engine ideal candidate for military and commercial applications where clean, quiet power is desired. The demand for hydrogen has increased recently due to progress in fuel cell technologies. Fuel cells are electro-chemical devices described as continuously operating batteries and are considered as a additional clean source of electric energy for marine vessel, containing high energy efficiency. A new CFD simulation model of the ethanol steam reforming (ESR) has been developed. The reforming system model is composed from an ethanol burner and a catalytic bed reactor. The radiative heat flux from burner is transferred to the catalytic bed reactor for steam reforming.
