Active-coupling mixing times for a stirred binary liquid

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mixing times measured for a stirred critical binary liquid mixture are seen to vary dramatically with Reynolds number, Prandtl number, and the initial value of the order parameter. These variations are far too large to be explained by passive-mixing calculations; they also differ in significant respects from the active-mixing predictions of Ruiz and Nelson.
