Understanding the flow in stirred vessels can be useful for a wide number of industrial applications. There is a wealth of numerical simulations of stirring vessels with standard impeller such as Rushton turbine and pitch blade turbine. Here, a CFD study has been performed to observe the spatial variations (angular, axial and radial) of hydrodynamics (velocity and turbulence field) in unbaffled stirred tank with Concave-bladed Disc turbine (CD-6) impeller. Three speeds (N=296, 638 & 844.6 rpm) have been considered for this study. The angular variations of hydrodynamics of stirred tank were found very less as compared to axial and radial variations.
