Abstract

We suggest a reactive Sherwood number model for convective mass transfer around reactive particles in a dilute regime. The model is constructed with a simple external-internal coupling and is validated with Particle-Resolved Simulation (PRS). The PRS of reactive particle-fluid systems requires numerical methods able to handle efficiently sharp gradients of concentration and potential discontinuities of gradient concentrations at the fluid-particle interface. To simulate mass transfer from reactive catalyst beads immersed in a fluid flow, we coupled the Sharp Interface Method (SIM) to a Distributed Lagrange Multiplier/Fictious Domain (DLM/FD) two-phase flow solver. The accuracy of the numerical method is evaluated by comparison to analytic solutions and to generic test cases fully resolved by boundary fitted simulations. A previous theoretical model that couples the internal diffusion-reaction problem with the external advection-diffusion mass transfer in the fluid phase is extended to the configuration of three aligned spherical particles representative of a dilute particle-laden flow. Predictions of surface concentration, mass transfer coefficient and chemical effectiveness factor of catalyst particles are validated by DLM-FD/SIM simulations. It is shown that *
