ForK TutorialExercise 2 Creating new simulation projectto estimate explosion hazard

Aim: Determination of critical conditions of thermal explosion for a storage tank (drum) containing 80% solution of cumene hydroperoxide in cumene (well stirred assumption)

Drum:Cylinder with R=0.2 m, H=0.8 m, V=0.1 m3(100 l), S=1.26 m2; void volume VV=0.01 m3(10 l), phi=1.01 (contribution of mass heat capacity of the container is small)

Product properties:=0.8 g/cm3. Cp=2 J/g/K, sample mass = 80 kg, initial temperature – 20 oC, phi=1.01

Heat exchange:General mode, U=10 W/m2/K;Tenv=50oC

ForK TutorialExercise 2 Creating new simulation projectto estimate explosion hazard

Kinetics: Complex reaction with 2 stages in parallel:(1) A  B – N-order initiation reaction; stage rate – r1(2) A+B  2B – autocatalytic stage; stagerate - r2

Math model:(1): lnK01=20.4; n11=2; E1=102 kJ/mol; Q1=800 J/g

(2)lnK02=23; n21=4; n22=3;E2=96 kJ/mol; Q2=1800 J/g

Defining the drum model

Step 3. Defining kinetic model

1. Model structure

2. “Elementary” models for stages

3. Kinetic parameters

Model created with the kinetic parameters for the second stage defined

Data that should be assigned:

1. Model structure

2. “Elementary” models for stages

3. Kinetic parameters

Kinetic parameters for the first stage have been defined

Data that should be assigned:

1. Model structure

2. “Elementary” models for stages

Evaluating critical parameters of thermal explosion by using the “Effect of controls” option

1. Adjusting time interval for simulation

Note that max temperature rise (overheat) at initial environment T=60 C is very small. Next step is to elevate env. temperature

At Tenv=75 C overheat becomes much bigger. Continue to elevate Tenv till reaching explosion

There is pronounced thermal explosion at Tenv~77.5 C. More precise value can be obtained by varying Tenv with smaller step
