Turbulent Mixing in a Stirred Tank

Application ID: 12727

This example shows how the mixing capability of a stirred vessel can be evaluated. To efficiently reach the steady operational conditions the turbulent flow is solved for using a frozen rotor analysis, and a following time dependent simulation. When a quasi-steady flow field has developed, the turbulent mixing of a trace species is simulated, and the mixing time until it is fully mixed is evaluated.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
