Radiochemical and nuclear facilities use mixing to prepare materials for treatment, heat transfer, reaction, and sampling. Mixing of multiple phases (including fast settling solids in Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids) pose significant challenges to engineering design and prediction of process performance, degree of mixing (approach to homogeneity), and accurate fluidic prediction (including computational fluid dynamics) play important roles in the engineering design of mixing systems.
