Entrainment Phenomenon in Stratified Liquid Layers by Imposing Rotary Motion

Jishnu, M (2015) Entrainment Phenomenon in Stratified Liquid Layers by Imposing Rotary Motion. MTech thesis.



An attempt is made to study the entrainment phenomena in a stratified liquid layers by imposing rotary motion using numerical simulation as well as experimental investigation. The different cases are studied by placing a rotor at different locations either in the heavier fluid or in the interfaces. The phenomena is also studied by varying the rotor diameter and rotor speed used. Phase contours at different time instants are produced for each of the cases. The rate at which one phase is entering in to the other is also studied for each of the cases. Comparisons between the rates of entrainment with different cases are also made. The phase contour obtained through experimental observation are also presented at a regular interval of time.
