Chapter 8, The tradition i n introductory reactor design courses is to neglect a careful treatment of the fluid flow and use the simplified, ideal reactors for modeling. In Chapter 8 we explore what to do when the reactor flow pattern is not well represented by these ideal mixing assumptions. We introduce the reactor residence time distribution and describe the general issues of mixing in chemical reactors. We describe the limitations of these approximate mixing models. In some cases, ac­ curate modeling requires one to solve for the complete velocity proflle in the reactor.
