This video, courtesy of aixprocess GmbH, shows how the meal-drop to the kiln inlet shelf for a cement plant has been massively reduced through a simple modification, informed by Barracuda Virtual Reactor simulation.
CPFD Modeling of a Novel Internally Circulating Bubbling Fluidized Bed for Chemical Looping Combustion
This thesis by Christopher McIntyre from the University of Ottawa explores the use of CPFD modeling related to pressurized chemical looping combustion.
This video, created in conjunction with the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), demonstrates the early use of Barracuda Virtual Reactor for the simulation of a full-loop, cold-flow carbon capture unit (C2U).
This presentation by Andrew Larson and Peter Blaser provides an overview of a novel waste-to-fuels technology that is sustainable, versatile, and economically competitive with fossil fuels.
Effect of particle size distribution on hydrodynamics of pneumatic conveying system based on CPFD simulation
In this paper, researchers demonstrate Barracuda Virtual Reactor’s ability to accurately model the relationship between particle size distributions and the hydrodynamics of pneumatic conveying systems by comparing simulation results to experimental data.
MP-PIC Simulation of the Effects of Spent Catalyst Distribution and Horizontal Baffle in an Industrial FCC Regenerator. Part II: Effects on Regenerator Performance
This joint paper by the China University of Petroleum and SINOPEC is part two in a two part series on the effects of internals on FCC regenerator performance.
