Title: Computational analysis of the flow field in a baffled mixing tank
Author: Kellem, Daniel C.
Abstract: The fluid motion in a mixing tank was studied using a CFD code. The particular focus was given to the accurate representation of the role of baffles in a mixing tank. By rebuilding the boundary conditions at each time step the complete effects of the relative motion between the baffles and impeller is captured. This has allowed for an accurate Computational Fluid Dynamic representation of the flow in a baffled mixing tank. In addition, the development of the model has been automated through the use of geometry and mesh definition files. The combination of these two aspects has allowed for rapid model development to be used in selecting optimal tank, fluid and impeller combinations.
