Laminar Static Mixer
Application ID: 245
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. The mixing of one species dissolved in water at room temperature is modeled. The geometry consists of a tube with three twisted blades of alternating rotations. The Laminar Flow and Transport of Diluted Species interfaces are used with a Stationary study type.
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:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- Batteries & Fuel Cells Module, CFD Module, Chemical Reaction Engineering Module, Corrosion Module, Electrochemistry Module, Electrodeposition Module, Heat Transfer Module, Microfluidics Module, Pipe Flow Module, Plasma Module, or Subsurface Flow Module
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.
