Abstract
Agitation inside agricultural sprayer tanks can be studied while using an international standard procedure, based on obtaining internal samples of liquid. However, in practice, this test is not easy to perform. Herein, we propose the explicit study of the mixing procedure with biphasic computer simulations using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). An experimental test was performed on a 3000 L tank of a commercial air-assisted sprayer, with two di erent agitation system configurations, in order ...
