Laminar Static Mixer
Application ID: 245
In static mixers, also called motionless or in-line mixers, a fluid is pumped through a pipe containing stationary blades. This mixing technique is particularly well suited for laminar flow mixing because it generates only small pressure losses in this flow regime.
This example studies the flow in a twisted-blade static mixer. The mixing of one species dissolved in water at room temperature is modeled. The geometry consists of a tube with three twisted blades of alternating rotations. The Laminar Flow and Transport of Diluted Species interfaces are used with a Stationary study type.

The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on the physics interfaces that define it. Particular physics interfaces may be common to several products (see the Specification Chart for more details). To determine the right combination of products for your project, you should evaluate all of your needs in light of each product\'s capabilities, consultation with the COMSOL Sales and Support teams, and the use of an evaluation license.
