How to access this item?


The Chemical Engineering Module is tailor-made to study reacting systems including the effects of material and energy transport.

Starting with space-independent models, the module has tools to investigate kinetics using different chemistries, under the controlled conditions typical for laboratory scale and bench scale. To simulate realistic operating conditions, the module uses these chemistries and then includes the effects of space variations in composition and temperature.

The module targets industrial applications including the design of sensors in analytical instruments, catalysts and filter design in automotive exhaust systems, and process and product development of consumer products, fine and specialty chemicals, pharmaceuticals and bulk chemical processing.

The Chemical Engineering Module and the Reaction Engineering Module have been replaced with the new Chemical Reaction Engineering Module in COMSOL Multiphysics 4.0a.

Note: To use any of the COMSOL Modules, a COMSOL Multiphysics Base License pass is required. All module software is included with the COMSOL Multiphysics download file, which means you need to download only once.
