A Quin-diagonal Algorithm To Describe Mass Transfer And Backmixing In Extraction
Specific algorithms are especially effective and economical when used to solve sets of linear-algebraic equations when the coefficients of the equations are adjacent to the diagonal elements. The Thomas algorithm is well known and has been used in many areas of chemical engineering when "tridiagonal" sets of equations are encountered. A similar algorithm is developed for use when the coefficients take a quin(5)-diagonal configuration. Its application to multistage mass transfer operations is demonstrated and the effects of deviation from equilibrium and backmixing are illustrated for multistage extraction operations. © 1982.
