Numerical modelling of gas-liquid flow in stirred tanks
Abstract A numerical modelling method is presented for gas–liquid flow in mechanically stirred tanks. In this method, the tank is represented by a mesh which explicitly includes the impellerExpand

Influence of turbulence intensity on particle drag coefficients
Abstract The effect of turbulent eddies on the motion of the dispersed phase is often ignored by assuming a standard drag coefficient as applied to quiescent flow. Such an assumption can lead toExpand

DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED METHODS FOR COMPUTATIONAL MODELLING OF GAS DISPERSION IN STIRRED TANKS
This paper describes developments in CFD modelling of gas-sparged stirred tanks. An important aspect of modelling is the specification of the bubble drag coefficient, since this is the main factor inExpand

PREDICTING THE ENERGY DISSIPATION RATE IN A MECHANICALLY STIRRED TANK
The fluid kinetic energy dissipation rate in a mechanically stirred tank is an important parameter in relation to many process applications. For example, the dissipation rate controls the rates ofExpand
