Abstract

From an engineering point of view mixing is one of only a few situations where chaos can actually be beneficial to the efficiency of a process. However chaos complicates matters significantly because the process can, and prob- ably will become very sensitive to changes in the governing parameters, meaning that the efficiency of an otherwise good mixing process can de- crease considerably when, for example other fluids are used. Consequently the calculation of the mixing properties is very sensitive to computational errors. The aim of this study is to determine the effect of truncation errors induced by using deformation tables on the analysis and optimization of mixing processes. 1 Introduction Mixing of viscous fluids is one of the key processes in indust
