Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
Computational fluid dynamics is an important tool for design and optimization of chemical processes. It is one of the branches of fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve problems and analyze phenomena that involve fluid and chemically reacting flows.

Fluidization
Fluidization is a process whereby a granular material is converted from a solid-like state to a fluid-like state. Currently, there is much interest in the potential of fluidization for energy conversion. However, the process efficiency drops below the desired value. To use this process productively, it will need a substantial understanding and improvement.


Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Sequestration
Emission of CO2 from coal-fired power plants has increased over the past century. It is acknowledged that CO2 emissions make the major contribution to global warming and their reduction is needed. There are three approaches for capturing the CO2: post-, pre- and oxyfuel- combustion systems. A research study here is focused on post-combustion system
