Continuous mixing at ECCOMAS 2022

PhD student Giorgio Negrini has contributed with his talk entitled “Characterization of polymeric mixing processes with non-conforming methods in OpenFOAM in the mini-symposium Computational Modelling with OpenFOAM I at the 8th European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering (ECCOMAS Congress 2022). The talk presents the results of the joint research activity carried out in collaboration with Pirelli Tyre in the framework of the Joint Lab

The research focuses on the development of numerical tools based on the OpenFOAM software library for the simulation of non-Newtonian flows in continuous mixing devices.
