Multi-physics problems in mixing applications
Poor mixing can result in losses in the millions of Dollars/Euros in the chemical and process industries. CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) and DEM (Discrete Element Modeling) simulation can be used to answer many of the questions associated with mixing – answers that cannot be found by analytical or experimental methods.
In this live webinar, you will learn how process development engineers can benefit from using a template based app (Admixtus) to overcome the hurdles common to engineers new to simulation — setting up geometry, a reasonable mesh and adequate physics — to perform simulations and design exploration effectively and efficiently.
You will also learn how the Multiphysics approach in Simcenter STAR-CCM+ can be used to address the challenges of using simulation for:
- Coupled DEM + CFD for particle suspension in high viscosity liquids
- Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) for impeller displacement
- Heat Transfer and its effects on scale-up
- Optimizing operating conditions in gas-liquid systems
Who should attend:
- Process development engineers or managers who want to troubleshoot mixing problems or employ Quality by Design initiatives – this event will help you understand the applicability of deploying simulation to achieve these objectives
- Chemical engineers, Process engineers, Formulation technology engineers who are already using CFD in engineering work flow — this session will demonstrate the strength of Simcenter STAR-CCM+® meshing, workflow and the latest physics models for some of the most challenging mixing problems in the industry
