Abstract

Methane (CH4) is one of the most dangerous greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. A reverse flow reactor is utilized to convert CH4 to carbon dioxide (CO2) as a means of reducing the effect of global warming. The dynamics of its dependent variables can be stated by a set of convective-diffusion equations. In this article, we examined analytical solutions of temperature dynamics and methane conversion for a 1-D pseudo homogeneous model without refrigeration by using the homotopy analysis method. The results show that temperature and conversion of methane will go to constant when time goes to infinity.
