Motion Analysis Of Fluid Flow In A Spinning Disk Reactor, Valentina N. Korzhova Sep 2009

Motion Analysis Of Fluid Flow In A Spinning Disk Reactor, Valentina N. Korzhova

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The ow of a liquid _lm over a rapidly rotating horizontal disk has numerous industrial applications including pharmaceuticals, chemical engineering, bioengineering, etc. The analysis and control of complex uid ows over a rapidly rotating horizontal disk is an important issue in the experimental uid mechanics. The spinning disk reactor exploits the bene_ts of centrifugal force, which produces thin highly sheared _lms due to radial acceleration. The hydrodynamics of the _lm results in excellent uid mixing and high heat or mass transfer rates.

This work focuses on developing a novel approach for uid ow tracking and analysis. Speci_cally, the developed algorithm ...
