Residence Time Distribution by Particle Tracing

Residence Time Distribution by Particle Tracing

In this tutorial you will learn how to setup a particle tracing system to obtain the residence time distribution of flow in a T-channel. This method can essentially be applied in conjunction with any incompressible solver, like icoFoam, pisoFoam, pimpleFoam and etc.

Two-phase stirred tank reactor simulation using OpenFOAM®

Two-phase stirred tank reactor simulation using OpenFOAM®

Two-phase stirred tanks are two phase reactors with enhanced mixing and elongated gas holdup and residence time in comparison to bubble columns. They may contain one or more sets of impellers that promote mixing force and help bubble breakage to enhance gas-liquid contact. In this tutorial, you will learn how…
