A numerical method is proposed for solving an isothermal equimolar vapor phase parallel reaction problem in a tubular reactor with one dimensional eddy diffusion under the boundary conditions given by Danckwerts.<BR>This problem is described by simultaneous second order ordinary differential equations, and is transformed to a set of nonlinear simultaneous algebraic equations by expansion using the central finite difference operator. The Newton-Raphson method has been frequently used to solve these equations in spite of the difficulties of complicated derivation of Jacobian matrix and selecting adequate initial values.<BR>The proposed method is based on the relaxation method and consists of two calculation loops i) to correct the compositions of segmentation points of a reactor using a θ method with component material balances and ii) to repeat the point-by-point calculation in the sequence shown by Mori <I>et al</I>. in the solution of multistage, multi-component distillation problems. The method provides stable solution with a brief algorithm regardless of the number and rate equation of reactions, and is less sensitive in selecting initial values. The usefulness of the method is demonstrated by some numerical examples.
