Free Surface Mixer Level Set
Application ID: 88251
This example of turbulent flow in a partially baffled turbulent mixer with a three-bladed impeller shows how to set up the Rotating Machinery, Turbulent Flow interfaces from the Mixer Module with a Level Set method for free surface flow in a rotating geometry. A time-dependent simulation is performed and the vortex generated by the rotating fluid can be observed.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- either the CFD Module, or Heat Transfer Module and
- either the CFD Module, Microfluidics Module, Polymer Flow Module, or Porous Media Flow Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
