Authors: Marzena Iwaniszyn, Joanna Łojewska, Andrzej Kołodziej

Keywords: CFD modeling, heat transfer, flow resistance, short-channel structures

Abstract: Effect of the internal geometry of catalytic reactor capillary channels have been studied by means of numerical simulations. ANSYS FLUENT software was applied for carrying the analysis out. The temperature and pressure distribution for different channel lengths and cross-sectional shapes were pre-sented.
