Application ID: 16903
This model provides you with tools to build a variety of mixers by combining two common types of vessels with two types of impellers. The mixers are baffled flat and dished bottom vessels with either pitched blade impellers or Rushton turbines. The model includes three examples using the Rotating Machinery, Fluid Flow branch with the frozen-rotor study type. The first example solves a laminar mixing problem in a flat bottom mixer with a Rushton turbine. The second and third examples solve for turbulent mixing in a dished bottom mixer with a pitched blade impeller using the k-epsilon and k-omega turbulence models.
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:
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.
