Abstract
Various transport phenomena in conjunction with chemical reactions are strongly

affected by reformer configurations and properties of involved porous catalyst layers. The

considered composite duct is relevant for a methane steam reformer and consists of a porous

layer for the catalytic chemical reactions, the fuel gas flow duct and solid plate. In this paper,

a fully three-dimensional calculation method is developed to simulate and analyze reforming

reactions of methane, with purpose to reveal the importance of design and operating

parameters. The reformer conditions such as mass balances associated with the reforming

reactions and gas permeation to/from the porous catalyst... (More)

analysis. The results show that the characteristic parameters have significant effects on the

transport phenomena and overall reforming reaction performance. (Less)
