Particle Trajectories in a Laminar Static Mixer

Application ID: 10644


In static mixers, also called motionless or in-line mixers, a fluid is pumped through a pipe containing stationary blades. This mixing technique is particularly well suited for laminar flow mixing because it generates only small pressure losses in this flow regime. This example studies the flow in a twisted-blade static mixer. It evaluates the mixing performance by calculating the trajectory of suspended particles through the mixer. The model uses the Laminar Flow and Particle Tracing for Fluid Flow interfaces.
