Lyutsia Dautova, master of engineering student; Ivana Milanovic, associate professor of mechanical engineering, CETA; and Khaled J. Hammad, assistant professor of engineering at Central Connecticut State University, presented a research paper at the International Conference on Innovation and Trends in Applied Computing (ITAC), which took place in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India, in February.

The paper, "Experimentally Validated CFD Model of a Turbulent Jet Stirred Tank," focused on the capability of general purpose computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code to predict flow field inside a jet-stirred cylindrical vessel. The goal was to assess turbulence models and provide numerical data for various configurations of a fully developed turbulent jet. ANSYS Fluent was used to model the submerged jet issued vertically downward from a long pipe. Simulation results for symmetrical jet placement were validated with Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements.

This work can be found in the ITAC 2012 proceedings published in book form: Dautova, L., Milanovic, I., & Hammad, K. J. (2012). Experimentally Validated CFD Model of a Turbulent Jet Stirred Tank. In M. Kshirsagar, B. Patil, U. Gawande, L. Manzione, D. Shetty, & T. Eppes (Eds.), Proceedings of International Conference on Innovation and Trends in Applied Computing. (pp. 7-13).
