Abstract

This study deals with the development and testing of numerical techniques to deal with the flow in oscillatory baffled columns (OBCs) using numerical methods. This particular work tends to focus more on the effect of fluid density by the aid of software evaluation methods. Two different densities have been considered for water in 25 degrees Celsius with a density of 998.2 (kg/m∧3) and water at 100 degree Celsius with a density of 958.4 (kg/m∧3). In order to explore the effect of varying of this property on the flow regimes, three different flow regimes have been considered. These flow regimes included a laminar, a transient and a turbulent regime. A new method of evaluating and visualizing of the mixing has introduced. It observed that the water at 100 degrees with a lower density has reversed effect on mixing.
