CFD Analysis for Production of Carbon Nanotubes
Pages : 165-169
Carbon nanotubes are cylindrical molecules with a diameter of as little as 1 nanometer and length up to many micrometers. It consist of only carbon atoms. By using CFD tools, GAMBIT and FLUENT heat and fluid flow analysis of argon ferrocene mixture has been carried out. At high temperature ferrocene is splits into Carbon, Ferrous and Hydrogen. So to reduce the analysis time, instead of entering ferrocene in the form of powder, the species of carbon, ferrous and hydrogen are entered. Analysis is done and data is generated for the reactor with graphite tube & without graphite tube. Velocity of all the species in without graphite tube reactor is high & temperature in with graphite tube reactor is high.
