Modeling Chemical Reactions in COMSOL Multiphysics®

Simulation in chemical engineering is a cost-efficient way to explore new designs of systems and processes. The engineer can boost efficiency and get the understanding and intuition needed for future innovation by employing modeling.

Understand and Optimize Chemical Processes and Designs

The Chemical Reaction Engineering Module, an add-on to the COMSOL Multiphysics® software platform, provides user interfaces for creating, inspecting, and editing chemical equations, kinetic expressions, thermodynamic functions, and transport equations.

After developing a validated model, it can be used for studying different operating conditions and designs of reacting systems and transport phenomena. Solving the model equations over and over for different inputs leads to a true understanding of the studied system.

Additionally, the Chemical Reaction Engineering Module, along with other tools in COMSOL Multiphysics®, provides state-of-the-art mathematical and numerical methods adapted for optimization and parameter estimation of chemical systems.
