Computer Simulation and Optimization of the NOx Abatement System at the Radford Facility and Army Ammunition Plant
MetadataShow full item record
By leading the reader through the process by which we arrived at a successful and highly informative computer model for NOx absorption and SCR, we hope to educate the reader on the subtleties of NOx abatement by absorption and SCR. We attempt to break down the numerous complex processes to present a less daunting prospect to the engineer challenged with the application of current NOx removal technology. In addition, we introduce the reader to the power and usefulness of computer modeling in instances of such complexity. The model teaches us about the details of the process and helps us develop concrete information for its optimization. Ideally, the reader could use a similar approach in tackling related operations and not confine the usefulness of this thesis to NOx absorption and SCR.
The audiences that we think would benefit from exposure to this thesis are the following: Â· Environmental engineers with a NOx problem; Â· Process engineers interested in optimization tools; Â· Design engineers exploring flue-gas treatment options; Â· Combustion engineer desiring to learn about SCR; Â· Chemists and mathematicians intrigued by the complexities of NOx absorption chemistry.
