Abstract

Mixing in a fluid jet agitated horizontal cylindrical tank has been simulated using computational fluid dynamics. A known volume of hot fluid is allowed to mix with the main fluid in the large tank which is set at a lower temperature. The fluid jet is provided using a simple pump around. Temperature measurements at various monitoring points inside the tank are used to quantify mixing. Results show that blending time is largely dependent on the flow patterns generated inside the tank. These flow patterns are a function of the tank geometry, the location and the angle at which the jet is injected. The role played by the length of the jet in determining the blending time is not as major as was thought by earlier workers. Significant reduction in blending times is achieved by changing the location and/or the angle of the incoming jet in a way that results in a better flow circulation.
