Nonlinear Wave Propagation in Chemical Processes
SummaryThe dynamic behavior of many chemical processes is governed by travelling temperature and concentration fronts also termed nonlinear waves in Physics and Applied Mathematics. These nonlinear waves provide an easy understanding of the process dynamics and thereby guide the way to improved process operation and control as well as new process concepts. Recent research at the Max-Planck-Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg is concerned with an extension of the theoretical fundamentals for combined reaction separation processes. Further, applications for model based measurment and control are investigated.
