In this paper a heat transfer modeling of a membrane reactor for methane steam reforming was developed in order to analyse the importance of temperature for methane conversion and hydrogen yield. A CFD softwarwe was applied to analyze the steam methane reforming in the chemical reactor investigated. Also, the study was intended to give us an insight regarding the interaction between the flow, chemical reaction and temperature.


Keywords: heat transfer modeling, reactor, methane reforming.
