Abstract

Numerical methods are presented for the calculation of residence time distributions in steady incompressible fluid flow using a given set of normal fluid fluxes, defined across the cell faces of a cartesian tensor product mesh. A particle tracking approach is adopted involving the construction of a piecewise polynomial representation of the velocity distribution, and subsequent integration of this representation for the determination of individual particle trajectories.
