Abstract For the first time, the extent to which laminar and turbulent Couette-Taylor flow (CTF) combine a limited axial dispersion with a high local mixing intensity has been quantified by simultaneously measuring the inter-vortex flux and the tangential dispersion. The correlations for the tangential dispersion indicate that the local mixing intensity of CTF is of the same order of magnitude as in coiled pipe flow. The axial dispersion was measured in such a way that the dispersion enhancing… CONTINUE READING
