Behavior of a Power-Law Fluid in a Mixer

Application ID: 16025


This model shows how to use simulations to predict power numbers with Power Law fluids in a mixer. It simulates the behavior of flow in a flat bottom tank with a single four-blade pitched impeller. The flow was modeled as laminar and the frozen rotor approach was used to solve the discrete governing equations in one quarter of a baffled tank. The calculated power numbers were compared with experimental results in literature and a good agreement was achieved.

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