A three‐parameter model of axial and radial dispersion in a packed tubular reactor is proposed as an alternative to the Fickian dispersion model. Though it is formulated in terms of differential equations, it requires no exit boundary condition, so it is mathematically more convenient than the Fickian model. Examples of its application to chemical reactors are given.
