The joined wing concept is an unconventional airplane configuration, known since the mid-twenties of the last century. It has several possible advantages, like reduction of the induced drag and weight due to the closed wing concept. The inverted joined wing variant is its rarely considered version, with the front wing being situated above the aft wing. The following paper presents a performance prediction of the recently optimized configuration of this airplane. Flight characteristics obtained numerically were compared with the performance of two classical configuration airplanes of similar category. Their computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models were created basing on available documentation, photographs and some inverse engineering methods. The analysis included simulations performed for a scale of 3-meter wingspan inverted joined wing demonstrator and also for real-scale manned airplanes. Therefore, the results of CFD calculations allowed us to assess the competitiveness of the presented concept, as compared to the most technologically advanced airplanes designed and manufactured to date. At the end of the paper, the areas where the inverted joined wing is better than conventional airplane were predicted and new research possibilities were described.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Simulation of Liquid-Liquid Mixing in Mixer Settler

Mixer-settlers are widely used inmetallurgical, mineral and chemical process. One of the greatest challenges in the area of hydrometallurgy process simulation is agitation made by impeller inside mixer-settler which yet presents one of the most common operations. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model has been developed to predict the effect of different physical parameters including temperature and density on the mixing characteristics of the system. It is noted that non-isotropic nature of flow in a mixer-settler, the complex geometry of rotating impellers and the large disparity in geometric scales present are some of the factors which contribute to the simulation difficulty. The experimental data for different velocity outlet was also used in order to validate the model.
