Fractal Analysis of Mixing in Zinc-Silica Composite Electrolyte by Particle Image Velocimetry
This paper investigates the mixing effect in zinc-silica composite electrolyte by particle image velocimetry (PIV) and fractal dimension method. Fifteen groups of orthogonal tests including different rotational speed, electric current and height of paddle are carried out to study the mixing homogeneity using fractal dimension method, it is found that the case with paddle height of 1cm, electric current of 0.25 A and rotational speed of 1000 rpm is better than the others, and at last the distribution of silica in composite coating provides a strong evidence for characterizing the mixing homogeneity.
