(368c) A Direct Numerical Simulation of a Marginally Turbulent Stirred Vessel Equipped with a Rushton Turbine
AIChE Annual Meeting
Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 1:20pm to 1:45pm
The results of this simulation are compared with experimental data from the literature and with the results of the less refined DNSs reported earlier. The main variables of interest are the turbulent kinetic energy and its dissipation rate, phase averaged as well as phase resolved, which can be calculated from the outcome of such a DNS at any position in the vessel. Also turbulent spectra can be obtained in this way and some spectra will be presented for some positions in the vessel.
