Dispersion in oscillatory flows

Abstract:

The enhanced axial mixing which is caused by dispersion in oscillatory flows in some mass transfer devices may limit the reactor performance. This effect has provided the motivation for the present study in which oscillatory flow dispersion in a flat channel of large aspect ratio is investigated. The rate of spreading of a uniform slug of some passive tracer has been predicted using numerical and analytical techniques and the results have been verified experimentally.

The numerical...
