Using both Monte Carlo and numerical techniques, Taylor dispersion in a curved tube at low Dean numbers has been evaluated and the results are in qualitative agreement with those found by Janssen (1976) : Dn2Sc is the controlling parameter with Dell falling to about 0.2 of its straight-tube value at high values of DnaSc. Agreement with available experimental data is generally good. Further, we find that for large Dn2Sc, the transition from convective to diffusive dispersion occurs earlier than… CONTINUE READING
