haivu116 is on a distinguished road

I am having some problems regarding the agglomeration of crystals during crystallisation and seeking for your helps here.
I tried including the Lou model and the turbulence model for crystal agglomeration in my crystallisation of Kcl from aqueous solution; the results were unreasonable when compared with the crystallisation without the agglomeration I ran before. (size was smaller and the total number was larger)

Then, I tried enabling the Reaction (in the Phase interaction, under the Multiphase section) and set the transfer from crystal to crystal, thinking it would be quite similar to cases where I have reaction from solute to crystals before. However, the solution did not converge.

Please give some thought on the problems if you have any idea.

Thank you all!
