Adiabatic-Temperature Rise: An Awkward Calculation Made Simple

How to estimate a final temperature after a reaction

Subin Hada & B. Keith Harrison, University of South Alabama

Predicting an adiabatic-temperature rise is useful to chemical engineers for a number of purposes. Unfortunately, calculating the adiabatic-temperature rise conventionally requires a tedious iterative solution, which is cumbersome to do by hand. We present here a means of performing this calculation that makes use of much less-expensive technical software. The software used here is not specifically designed to make this calculation but does so quite adequately and also has the benefit of documenting the calculations rather well.
