Abstract:On the basis of rheodynamic equations, a numerical investigation of the flow structure of a viscoplastic fluid and dispersed phase separation in a hydrocyclone has been carried out. The proposed mathematical model will make it possible to calculate the separation indices and the velocity, pressure, and particle density fields in the apparatus.
