Development of a Computational Fluid Dynamics code for the coupled solution of solid-fluid motion during blade rotation in two-phase flow

Funding: GSRT (ΠΑΒΕ-ΝΕ 04ΒΕΝ131)

Partners: SimTec, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki Department of Chemistry

SimTec developed a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code for the simulation of the coupled solid-fluid motion during the rotation of blades in single-phase and two-phase flows and through interfaces of nonmiscible fluids, when the blade rotation is not externally controlled. The simulation results have been validated via comparison with data provided by an experimental device that was constructed, especially for the validation, at the Chemistry Department, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. The scope for the particular research project is the optimization of mixing processes in Industry.
