As part of the Smart Regions project, the software for simulation of membrane gas separation was developed and completed.
Software for gas membrane separation is one of the project goal, that has been successfully finished. Software is modified for usage in process simulation program DWSIM. The core of the software is the script for mathematical model of gas membrane separation written in the programming language IronPython. The model considers membrane separation of M gas species for co-current or counter-current flow setting in membrane module equipped with Nf hollow fibers of length L. Pressure drop in the module is dealt by Hagen-Poiseuill low. Numerical solution of the model is reached by membrane module discretization to N finite volumes. Complete set of N(2M+1)-1 equations is solved by Newton method. Model script is nowadays prepared for licensing.
