The present work is a comparative analysis of Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) and Dynamic Mode Decomposition (DMD) computed on experimental turbulent velocity fields measured in a 20L-tank stirred by two Rushton impellers at two rotating speeds, N = 150 and 300 rpm. POD identifies flow structures that optimally capture the total kinetic energy of the flow, while DMD identifies structures that significantly contribute to the dynamics of the flow. The experimental data, i.e. the instantaneous radial and axial velocity fields, come from 2-D Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV). The flow motion is turbulent, and it occurs over a wide range of length and time scales, from equipment-dependent large-scale coherent structures to the smallest-scale eddies where energy dissipation takes place. It thus provides an interesting benchmark case for the comparison between POD and DMD, which are based on energy and dynamic analysis, respectively. POD analysis reveals that the most energetic structures are related to the inherent periodic unsteadiness due to the relative motion between the rotating impeller blades and the non-moving baffles. Apart from the mean field, the first most energetic group of modes is related to trailing vortices induced by the Rushton turbines and is associated to a frequency equivalent to the blade passage frequency and its overtones. The second most energetic group of modes is related to vortical structures in the impeller stream and is associated to a frequency equivalent to the rotating speed. DMD analysis identifies flow structures that are found similar to these most energetic modes, although differences appear due to the fact that DMD isolates structures associated to a single frequency and their corresponding growth/decay rate. As in POD, the relative importance of each DMD mode can be estimated using an appropriately defined energy criterion. Comparison of the results from both modal decomposition methods points out their complementarity and their potential for describing the spatial and time characteristics of the flow within a stirred tank.

In stirred-tank bioreactors, flow structures of various length and time scales are implied in scalar transport phenomena, such as gas species transfer through the liquid free-surface and their homogenization in the bulk. A proper understanding of the underlying mechanisms, i.e. hydrodynamics, mixing and mass transfer, and of their interactions is required to design and develop reliable and efficient production-scale bioprocesses. The objective of the present work is to experimentally investigate the coupling between gas-liquid mass transfer of oxygen with mixing efficiency and circulation patterns inside an arbitrarily chosen stirred-tank configuration aerated through the liquid free-surface, a baffled 20 L-vessel agitated by two Rushton turbines. Based on global parameter values, the most appropriate rotating speed, N = 300 rpm, is selected in order to further study local hydrodynamic quantities using Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), as well as mixing and mass transfer dynamics using Planar Laser-Induced Fluorescence (PLIF). The results obtained with these local experimental methods are analyzed in detail. Their averages are first successfully compared to global data. Statistical analysis of their spatial distributions show that large-scale flow patterns significantly influence mass transfer through the free-surface of the stirred tank. Even if global measurements show that global characteristic times for mixing and mass transfer differ by two orders of magnitude, local experimental characterization shows persistent vertical gradients of dissolved gas concentrations. So the dissolved gas concentration is not as perfectly uniform as one might expect. [less ▲]

The aim of this work is the validation of an Euler–Lagrange modeling approach coupling a CFD-based compartment model (Eulerian approach) and a stochastic model based on a Continuous-Time Markov Chain (Lagrangian approach). The turbulent flow structure and the mixing process in a bioreactor stirred by an axial Mixel TT impeller is characterized by PIV and tracer experiments. Comparison between experimental and numerical data shows that the CFD-based compartment model is able to reproduce accurately the spatial heterogeneities inside the bioreactor. The trajectory of a small tracer particle which perfectly follows the fluid flow is measured by optical trajectography. It is then simulated by a stochastic model which is either based on an homogeneous or on an inhomogeneous Continuous Time Markov Chain (CTMC). Comparison of residence and circulation time distributions in three zones defined inside the bioreactor shows that the inhomogeneous CTMC model predicts with an excellent accuracy the particle trajectories inside the bioreactor. The modeling approach proposed here could be an useful tool to design scale-down bioreactors in order to reproduce at lab-scale the stress levels encountered in large-scale production bioreactors and to characterize and compare different bioreactor configurations.

Biotechnological and chemical processes often need a supply of gas for acceptable product formation. In some applications - where either gas requirements/reactor volumes are relatively low, or bubbles are undesirable - aeration through the liquid free-surface is enough to meet the demand. In case of sparged stirred tanks, aeration through the liquid free-surface is a factor to be determined when scaling-up /down processes. Gas-liquid transfer is strongly influenced by the hydrodynamic conditions. Two phenomena, occurring at different scales, can be coupled in order to explain mass transfer : (i) circulation (macroscale) and (ii) mixing/homogenization (microscale). Mixing/homogenization takes into consideration the small eddies responsible for the rippled liquid free-surface and for the concentration gradients surrounding it. Circulation determines the fluid path across the reactor as well as its contribution of the surface aeration and leads to periodic and local deformation of the liquid free-surface. Circulation also accounts for the design of the reactor, where the scaling problems are focused. The objective of this work is to develop an experimental approach able to fully (global and local quantities) characterize a chosen agitation configuration in terms of hydrodynamics, mixing and transfer, in order to assess the capability of computational methods to predict gas-liquid mass transfer due to aeration through the liquid free-surface.

The present work presents CFD simulations of hydrodynamics, mixing and mass transfer in a surface-aerated baffled stirred tank. The modelling of the multiphase flow is realized via an Euler-Euler approach. Three closure models are tested for the resolution of the RANS equations. When fully-developed flow field is reached, gas-liquid transfer is implemented with a local mass transfer coefficient estimated by the eddy cell model, and the temporal evolution of dissolved gas concentration is predicted.Hydrodynamic and mixing quantities as well as mass transfer parameters for the different turbulence models are compared with experimental data available for the same geometrical and operating features. A critical analysis of the prediction results allow to assess the models capabilities and to highlight the possible critical issues of the simulations. [less ▲]
