Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mass, heat and momentum transport processes are strongly coupled with catalytic chemical reactions in a methane steam reforming duct. In this paper, a three-dimensional calculation method is developed to simulate and analyze reforming reactions of methane, and the effects on various transport processes in a steam reforming duct. The results show that the design and operating parameters grouped as characteristic ratios have significant effects on the transport phenomena
