Fluent Inc - Particle Size Distribution/Crystallization Webinar
Please join Fluent Inc. and Dr. Allan Myerson, Philip Danforth Armour Professor of Engineering and Provost at the Illinois Institute of Technology, May 21, 2004 at 2:00 EST for this online seminar on calculating PSD coupled with fluid mechanics, with a focus on crystallization processes. This webinar is limited to attendees from the US and Canada only.
Date: May 21, 2004
Organizer: Fluent Inc.
Softwares: FLUENT
Deadlines: May 21, 2004 (registration)
Type of Event: Online Event, National

Size distribution is important in a wide range of applications such as crystallizers, bubble columns, fluidized bed reactors, sprays, soot formation, oil-water separators, and aerosols. Of critical importance in all of these applications is the capability to compare size distribution parameters for process scale-up. The concept of population balance is central to the calculation of size distribution of particles, bubbles or droplets and it is a salient component in modeling transport phenomena and chemical reactions. The size distribution can evolve due a combination of phenomena, such as nucleation, growth, dispersion, dissolution, aggregation, and breakage, all of which are influenced by the fluid mechanics and require models that are an active area of research. The seminar will introduce different methods and examples of solving the population balance equation in conjunction with Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Dr. Myerson will illustrate the concepts using crystallization as an example. In crystallization, predicting crystal size distribution is central to process control, product quality and downstream processing.

Join population balance experts Dr. Allan Myerson of IIT and Dr. Kumar Dhanasekharan of Fluent Inc. in this seminar to learn about predicting size distribution along with transport phenomena and chemical reactions.

Who Should Attend this Presentation?

This seminar will provide an introduction to population balance methods in CFD. Engineers, engineering managers, and scientists dealing with particle/ bubble/ droplet size distribution in their process or with applications such as crystallization, fluidization, bubble columns, etc. will benefit from this webinar. No prior experience with population balance methods or CFD is necessary.
