Abstract

The present research article presents numerical simulations of rotating of Newtonian fluid mixing flows in a cylindrical container through single rotating stirrer with agitator, where stirrer is located on the lid of container in concentric position. For this purpose a Quasi 3D (Three-Dimensional) FEA (Finite Element Algorithm) has been developed. The numerical algorithm is based on fractional stages semiimplicit Taylor-Galerkin/Pressure-Correction scheme. The simulation has been carried out to analyze the effects of agitator on mixing behavior. The numerical results show that Quasi 3D FEA is an accurate mathematical tool and able to achieve good results for flow structure in laminar regime.
