Description

We consider a model for in-depth pyrolysis using a continuum theory of mixtures. The material is assumed to be composed of a number of distinct solid and gas phases. The pyrolysis process is modeled as an inter-conversion of different constituent phases. The gas transport is assumed to be instantaneous and therefore gas momentum equation is not solved. We use data provided for Carbon Phenolic. Results show good (but not exact) agreement with FIAT results. Differences could be attributed to different treatment of the transport properties of the solid mixture and the integration of pyrolysis kinetics.
