Whilst the use of CFD to study mixing vessels is now commonplace,there are still many specialised aplications that are yet to be adressed. Here we present CDF and PIV results for a partially baffled vessel with a free surface. we show that there are significant transient effects that mean many of the "rules of thumb" that have been developed for fully-baffled vessels must be revisited. In particular such flows have central vortices that are unsteady and complex transient flow structures generated by the impeller-baffle interactions.
