Numerical investigations of transport phenomena in chemical engineering process

Yasunori Okano, Takuya Yamamoto

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Recent results on a numerical simulation of fluid dynamics, heat and mass transfer during SiC crystal growth by TSSG method are introduced as an example of chemical engineering process. It was found that Marangoni convection is dominant in the liquid phase and the three-dimentional numerical simulation result well explains the fluid flow in a water film suspended in a ring wire under the microgravity condition.
