Modelling of Solar Thermochemical Reaction Systems

This article reviews the progress, challenges and opportunities in numerical modelling of thermal transport, thermochemical reactions and thermomechanics in high-temperature solar thermochemical systems. Continuum-scale models are presented in mathematical detail while highlighting the literature that uses them. The discussion is enhanced by selected examples of numerical studies of solar thermochemical systems for solar fuels and commodity material production. Property predictions necessary for the modelling of solar thermochemical reaction systems are covered.
