Computational fluid dynamics simulations of silane inside a two-dimensional container filled with nitrogen gas were performed using finite element methods. Pressure gradients were introduced to the system, and the time needed for the system to reach dynamic equilibrium for mass fractions, pressure, and velocity was determined. The inlet size was also varied to determine how it affects the equilibriation time.
