Fundamental Areas / Numerical Analysis of Partial Differential Equations
The above figures display some components arising from the numerical simulation, via a mixed-primal finite element method, of the steady-state regime of a batch sedimentation process within a cylinder with a contraction. They correspond to the magnitude of the velocity field shown on the rotationally extruded domain, the second velocity component with vector directions, and the concentration, respectively. Further details are available in:
