Abstract An active mixing mechanism, to mix two fluids containing different mass concentrations of a solute when they must flow at a very low Reynolds number ( R e = 1 ), is analysed in this paper by means of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). The mixing mechanism is based on the pitching of a square cylinder located in the middle of a straight channel. To that end, several 2D numerical simulations have been conducted for different frequencies ( f ^ p ) and amplitudes ( A ) of the pitching… CONTINUE READING
