A commonly used reactor type is a fixed-bed reactor, which can be modeled with different levels of accuracy. A detailed simulation can be achieved by resolving the particles in 3D. The typical approach for the generation of fixed beds, as the input geometry for this method, is the Discrete Element Method. However, problems associated with non-spherical particles and computational cost still remain. As an alternative, the animation program, Blender, has recently been proposed. A comparative study of these methods was carried out to confirm that Blender is an adequate alternative to numerically generate fixed beds. View this paper.
