Abstract

Experimental and numerical characterizations of flow in continuous oscillatory baffled reactors (COBR) have mainly been based on single phase in past decades. By coupling a primary Eulerian liquid phase with a secondary discrete Lagrangian phase consisting of solid particles of given density and size, this work investigates the effects of particle size on axial dispersion, evaluates residence times and velocities of particles, and quantifies the oscillation dampening caused by the presence of solid particles in a COBR.
