Based on the classic work Transport Phenomena by Bird, Stewart, and Lightfoot, the Chemical Engineering Module is the perfect tool for process-related modelling. It is specifically designed to easily couple transport phenomena computational fluid dynamics (CFD) or mass and energy transport—to chemical reaction kinetics.

We have optimised the module for the modelling of reactors, filtration and separation units, heat exchangers, and other equipment common in the chemical industry.

Other modelling interfaces account for electrochemical systems (such as fuel cells) and applications where electric fields influence transport, such as electrophoresis and electrokinetic flow.

The Chemical Engineering Module melds seamlessly with the power of Comsol Multiphysics for Multiphysics and equation-based modelling. This latter feature allows for the inclusion of arbitrary expressions, functions, or external data for material properties and source terms in the transport equations.
