  • SUMMARY A detailed comparison between the finite element method (FEM) and the lattice-Boltzmann method (LBM) is presented. As a realistic test case, three-dimensional fluid flow simulations in an SMRX static mixer were performed. The SMRX static mixer is a piece of equipment with excellent mixing performance and it is used as a highly efficient chemical reactor for viscous systems like polymers. The complex geometry of this mixer makes such three-dimensional simulations non-trivial. An… CONTINUE READING
