Project Title: 
Computational Fluid Dynamics Studies of Flow Reactors and Particle Formation

These researchers build flow reactor models and simulate flows and chemistry using Fluent. There are temperature differences in the experiment that drive convection. The overall flow is given by a certain mass flow rate of nitrogen gas.  A low vapor pressure acid, H2SO4, is reacted with fairly volatile base species, such as ammonia and dimethyl amine. The group has also simulated sampling inlets for detecting trace species in ambient air, many of which can be lost to surfaces and some of which can later desorb if conditions change.
