About This Video
This video shows Barracuda Virtual Reactor simulation results for a thermal, reacting, chemical looping combustion (CLC) system with oxygen uncoupling (CLOU) modeled by the researchers at the University of Utah. The full particle circulation loop was captured in a single model including the air reactor, fuel reactor and other components (cyclone, diplegs, L-valves, loop seals, etc.). The left view shows particles colored by their volume fraction. The center view shows particles colored by the mass fraction of carbon, and reveals that most of the fuel particles remain in the fuel reactor. The right view shows the gas colored by the molar fraction of CO2 which remains primarily in the fuel reactor, enabling efficient carbon capture.
