Steady regimes of exothermic autocatalytic reaction in a continued stirred-tank reactor
A continued stirred-tank reactor with an exothermic autocatalytic reaction running in it is modeled. In contrast to the simple kinetic law formulated in terms of a first-order equation, a variety of possible types of thermal isoclines, including isoles, are found for the autocatalytic process in the dimensionless “degree of conversion-temperature” coordinates. A bifurcation curve separating the domains of existence of one and three steady states is constructed in the Se-Da coordinates.
