Equillibrium Reactions
Hi everyone
I have just started using CFD ACE. I have a small query regarding how to set a equillibrium reaction in CFD ACE.
Thank you

sure let me know if its not too late

i got that dude .... facing some other problem related to volume reaction along with surface reaction .....

majid_esi January 17, 2012 04:59

and whats that?

sulabh gupta January 17, 2012 05:25

If you have to solve for both reactions taking place in the volume of the reactor and one reaction on the surface of the reactor than how to proceed ...

majid_esi January 17, 2012 06:25

well, you can define the surface reaction on the boundary condition under chemical rex tab and volume reaction can be defined in volume condition again in chemical reaction tab

i knw that but the solution is not converged ....the reaction happens in some fractions of the reactor volume...

Is it Instantaneous reaction problem?

sulabh gupta January 18, 2012 00:50

No you have a reaction rate constant .... we can also take equilibrium reaction rate constant....

Its is difficult to answer this query without looking into the problem.

The problem is I am simulating a Chemical Vapor Deposition Reactor for production of silicon. The reactor configuration is such that you have an U shape rod where deposition takes place .Its basically Seimens process for production of Silicon.
the surface reaction is
along with this there are several volume reactions one of which is
how to proceed in this case .
