simulation of mixing flow
Hi, everyone: we want to simulate air mixing flow in a chamber. Two air streams enter the mixing chamber perpendicularly and mix together. we put a static mixer in the mixing chamber to enhance mixing. Is it possible to simulate such complicated flow problem? How can we generate the grid? Any suggestion would be appreciated.

Hi, Your problem is not much dificulty. I think the most thing is you should have some soft.

Thanks for your reply. yes, we can use some commercial software, but I think the challenge is we have a static mixer (maybe not a simple one) in the mixing chamber. I don't know how to generate the grid. How to give the boundary conditions.

Hello Willams, could you specify the static mixer?

Re: simulation of mixing flow
The static mixer is four triagular tabs with each one fixed at the middle of side walls of mixing chamber.

Re: simulation of mixing flow
wil! is there a thing as a static mixer? me thought mixing is not static

Re: simulation of mixing flow
It means the components of mixer is static, not active.
