Grad CRE Notes

New!   Web Lab with interactive simulation of dynamic reaction-diffusion in a porous catalyst.

These are links to resources for a graduate course in CRE. Topics include dynamics of CSTRs, surface reaction kinetics, reaction and diffusion in porous catalysts, and reaction and diffusion in Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD).

Dynamics of reactions

  • see CRE Notes, CSTR – thermal effects, for dynamics of this reactor type
  • Pendulum notes – simple mechanical oscillator used as analogy
  • Pendulum web app – Warning – may take several minutes to download and launch (opens in new tab)
  • Oregonator oscillating reaction model – description
  • Oregonator – waves
