Numerical investigation of a reaction in a batch reactor: flammability limits

Abstract


We study the spatial behaviour of the hydrogen-chlorine reaction in a batch reactor. The solutions exhibit regimes of slow and fast reaction. The main aim of this work is to distinguish between flaming and non-flaming mixtures from the numerical solutions. After setting out a practical criterion for flammability, we construct diagrams in parameter space which display the regions in which the reaction mixture is flammable.
