Abstract:
Over the last few decades, static mixers have been used commonly in different industries mainly for mixing of high viscosity fluids. The performance of this group of mixers has been investigated by many groups via numerically based studies. Experimental studies, however, are limited, particularly for measurement of the flow fields with fluids of complex rheology; there is also a lack of fundamental understanding of laminar flow and mixing performance for such duties. This is essential in order to gain improved design procedures for the selection and operation of the mixers in blending applications.
