CFD Analysis on Electrochemical Reactor


Electrochemical reactors are at the nexus of modern industrial processes, holding potential for transformative applications in energy, environment, and synthesis. At the heart of their performance lies the flow field plates, which play a pivotal role in ensuring optimal reactant distribution and effective product removal. Recognizing the significance of these plates, our study focuses on a comprehensive Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) steady flow analysis of different flow field plate designs within the reactor.


The primary thrust of this CFD analysis is to predict the flow profiles and pressures associated with each plate design. Flow profiles, particularly in electrochemical environments, can greatly impact mass transfer rates, reaction kinetics, and overall reactor efficiency. Understanding these profiles in the context of different plate designs can shed light on potential performance enhancements or inefficiencies.


Our exploration doesn’t halt at the individual analysis of each plate design. A central component of our investigation is a comparative study. By juxtaposing the velocity and pressure profiles of the four different plate designs, we aim to delineate distinctions in their performance characteristics.


In essence, this study is not merely a technical exercise in fluid dynamics. It is an endeavor to inform and optimize electrochemical reactor design, merging theoretical simulations with tangible engineering outcomes, ultimately driving the advancement of electrochemical processes.
