## Project Description

In this project, Side Entry Mixing Tank in Different RPM has been simulated by Ansys Fluent Software. which has been done by the CFD numerical simulation method by Ansys Fluent software, a mixing tank has been simulated. The mixing process is essential in many industries; for example, in the oil and gas industry, water deposition causes much damage to storage tanks, which causes corrosion, leakage, and perforation of the source. Side mixing blades are used to prevent these events because in most positions, due to space limitations, the blade can not enter the tank from above. This simulation is performed at different rotational speeds of 400 and 900 and 1400 rpm with the mesh motion method.

## Geometry & Mesh

The three-dimensional geometry of this project is designed with Spaceclaim software. The length of the computational area is 400 cm, the width is 400 cm, and the height is 375 cm.

ANSYS Meshing produces the grid of the computational area, and the number of elements is 933102, which is made of relatively small grid elements.

## Side Entry Mixing Tank CFD Simulation

To simulate this acoustic project, several assumptions are considered:

• We perform a pressure-based solver.
• The simulation is unsteady (Transient)
• We consider the gravity (-9.81 m^2/s) in the z-direction.

The following table represents a summary of the defining steps of the problem and its solution:

## Side Entry Mixing Tank Results

In this simulation, the mixing tank contains water and oil, in which water settles to the bottom of the tank due to its higher density. We mixed the tank’s contents using a side mixer that rotates at 1400, 900, and 400 rpm. We want to get the perfect mixing time for each item. We checked the complete mixing criterion using three sensors placed in different positions of the tank and plotting the volume fraction of oil and water for all three points overtime on the chart. According to these charts, the mixing time is 100 seconds for 400 rpm, 14 seconds for 900 rpm, and 8 seconds for 1400 rpm

Given this trend, it is clear that increasing the rotational speed to a certain extent (here 900 rpm) is very useful for us and reduces the mixing time considerably, but increasing it too much has little effect on the mixing time And we can ignore it and naturally our cost of choosing an engine will be reduced

## Reviews

1. Prof. Ora Prosacco

I am thrilled with the clarity of the results across different RPMs for the Side Entry Mixing Tank simulation. It is particularly impressive how the increased rotational speed to 900 RPM drastically reduces the mixing time compared to 400 RPM, whilst further increases above 900 RPM show diminishing returns on mixing efficiency. This insightful outcome must be incredibly beneficial for optimizing industrial processes with respect to equipment selection and operational costs.

I’m impressed by the clarity of your simulation results showing the impact of different rotational speeds on the mixing process. Could you please detail the criteria used to determine the perfect mixing time?

• MR CFD Support

Thank you for your appreciation! The perfect mixing time was determined by placing three sensors at various points inside the tank. These sensors monitored the volume fraction of oil and water over time. The mixing time was deemed complete when the observed volume fractions at all three sensor locations stabilized and became uniform, indicating a homogeneous mixture.

The final results indicate a decrease in the mixing time as the RPM increases. Could you provide more detail on how the mixture uniformity was assessed and determined?

• MR CFD Support

Absolutely! The mixture uniformity was determined through numerical sensors placed at various locations in the tank. The volume fraction of oil and water was recorded over time, allowing us to observe the rate of mixing. Additionally, by examining both transient behavior and established mixture uniformity at timed intervals, it was possible to ascertain when the mixture reached a homogeneous state at each rotational speed.

17. Andre Luettgen MD

Where are the sensors located in the tank, and how do they measure the perfect mixing time?

• MR CFD Support

The sensors in the tank are located at different positions to accurately measure the concentration of oil and water throughout the mixing process. They record the volume fraction of oil and water overtime, and perfect mixing time is determined by analyzing when the sensor readings indicate a uniform mixture across all sensors. The faster the approach to a homogeneous mixture, the more efficient the mixing process at a given rotational speed.

18. Sabryna Lynch

This training seems quite comprehensive. I am interested to know, how does changing the rotational speed affect the simulation time and computational resources required?

• MR CFD Support

Increasing the rotational speed of the mixer does make the simulation more complex and could potentially increase the computational resources and simulation time required due to the higher number of interactions at each time step. However, it primarily depends on the capabilities of the solver and computational setup utilized in ANSYS Fluent.
