Advanced computational simulations of flow and transport processes in stirred vessels
01 / 2008 - onbekend
PROJECT AIM: The idea is to reduce the extent of modeling in computational simulation of turbulent flow and transport phenomena in process equipment in general and in stirred vessels in particular. That is part of the reason why we focus on Large- Eddy Simulations (LES). In addition, the inherent transient solutions obtained by means of LES yield a better description of the dynamic environment in which all type of physical operations and chemical processes take place. For reasons of computational efficiency, we prefer Lattice-Boltzmann techniques which allow massive parallellization - at least for the simulation of the flow field.
