Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Analytical derivation for the dependence of exit reactor concentration on the Damkohler number and rheological parameters of the Prandtl-Eyring fluid is given. The derivation is based on the expression of the residence time of annular elements of the fluid within the laminar flow reactor as a function of reactor length and radial position. Calculations were made for different rheological parameter values.
