Laminar Flow in a Baffled Stirred Mixer

Model ID: 8559


This model exemplifies the use of the Rotating Machinery interface, which allows you to model moving rotating parts in, for example, stirred tanks, mixers, and pumps.

The Rotating Machinery interface formulates the Navier-Stokes equations in a rotating coordinate system. Parts that are not rotated are expressed in the fixed material coordinate system. The rotating and fixed parts need to be coupled together by an identity pair, where a flux continuity boundary condition is applied.
