Numerical methods for solving some fluid mechanics problems met in a strongly rotating gas centrifuge
The communication is presented in the form of a computer-animation movie, made from the output data of three numerical models. These models have been built to investigate in a gas centrifuge respectively the flow, the species separation and the optimization of the flow field. The figures heredown have been extracted from the movie.
