In this paper, Barracuda Virtual Reactor is used alongside a chemical process optimization software to analyze a biomass gasification process
Particle segregation in Barracuda Virtual Reactor® is influenced by both fundamentals and empirical models. Barracuda Virtual Reactor results can range from full particle segregation to uniform beds depending on the…
Three-Dimensional Numerical Simulation of the Co-Combustion of Oil Shale Retorting Solid Waste with Cornstalk Particles in a Circulating Fluidized Bed Reactor
This paper presents a CPFD model for solid waste and biomass particle combustion in a circulating fluidized bed.
This paper compares the results of a two-fluid model (TFM) of a fluidized bed to other CFD methods, including Barracuda Virtual Reactor.
Validation and Application of CPFD Models in Simulating Hydrodynamics and Reactions in Riser Reactor with Geldart A Particles
In this paper, a model developed using Barracuda Virtual Reactor is used to quantify the relationship between the flow hydrodynamics and the chemical reactions in multiphase flow-reaction systems.
Modeling and Process Features of Plug Flow Reactor with Internal Recirculation for Biomass Pyrolysis
Virtual Reactor simulation of a biomass pyrolysis reactor, by Kokourine and Adham at Hatch, verifies that plug-flow with internal-recirculation (PFIR) can be achieved under reasonable operating conditions.
Numerical Simulation of a Commercial FCC Regenerator Using Multiphase Particle-in-Cell Methodology (MP-PIC)
The simulation results in this paper show the numerous modeling capabilities of the MP-PIC approach to identify possible performance and reliability issues of an industrial Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) regenerator..
Influence of Drag Laws on Pressure and Bed Material Recirculation Rate in a Cold Flow Model of an 8 MW Dual Fluidized Bed System by Means of CPFD
A cold flow model of an 8 MW dual fluidized bed (DFB) system is simulated using Barracuda Virtual Reactor, and then the effect of the chosen drag law on the hydrodynamics is analyzed.
In this paper, Barracuda Virtua Reactor was used to help disprove the notion that probes do not affect the data collected in circulating fluidized bed risers and prove that intrusive probe measurements consistently mispredict the behavior of the system.
Typical circular air distributors will have ring(s) of nozzles which can be modeled with Injection BCs. Determining the x,y,z location and nx, ny, nz direction of each nozzle can be challenging…
