Reports on Chemical Engineering from Warsaw University of Technology Provide New Insights (Analysis Of The Liquid Flow In A Vessel With A Rotating Disk At The Liquid Surface)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- A new study on Chemical Engineering is now available. According to news reporting out of Plock, Poland, by VerticalNews editors, the research stated, "This study is concerned with liquid flow induced by a disk which rotates steadily around its axis and touches the free surface of liquid contained in a cylindrical vessel. It is a simplified model of the flow in the inlet part of a vertical cooling crystallizer where a rotary distributor of inflowing solution is situated above the free surface of solution contained in the crystalliser."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Warsaw University of Technology, "Numerical simulations of flow phenomena were conducted and the simulation results were interpreted assuming an analogy with Karman's theoretical equations. In a cylindrical coordinate system, the components of flow velocity were identified as functions of distance from the surface of the rotating disk. The experimental setup was developed to measure velocity fields, using digital particle velocimetry and optical flow. Conclusions concerning the influence of disc rotation on liquid velocity fields were presented and the experimental results were found to confirm the results of numerical simulation."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "On the basis of simulation data, an approximation function was determined to describe the relationship between the circumferential component of flow velocity and the distance from the disk."
