A new pseudo-component characterization method was developed. It is based on a Gaussian quadrature rule whose weight function is the olar fraction distribution of the complex mixture. Due to itsâ€¦ (More)

Simulation of polydisperse flows must include the effects of particleâ€“particle interaction, as breakage and aggregation, coupling the population balance equation (PBE) with the multiphase modelling.â€¦ (More)

Despite its recognized strength in global optimization problems, the high number of objective function evaluations requested by the Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) method severely limits itsâ€¦ (More)

We developed a method for the solution of the compressible flow with mass transfer of semi-continuous mixtures and it is based on the quadrature method of moments (QMoM) for continuousâ€¦ (More)

Despite the advantages of the moment based methods in solving multivariate population balances models, these methods still suffer with the so-called multivariate moment inversion problem. Althoughâ€¦ (More)
