One of the major fields of application of microstructure technology and microsystems technology will probably be centered in medical engineering. Above all in neurosurgery, highly sophisticated surgical instruments featuring high functionality combined with high reliability are needed. Products fabricated by conventional manufacturing technologies can(More)
This work presents a sequential modular approach to solve a generic network of reactors with a population balance model using a stochastic numerical method. Full-coupling to the gas-phase is achieved through operator-splitting. The convergence of the stochastic particle algorithm in test networks is evaluated as a function of network size, recycle fraction(More)
The aim of this work is to present the mathematical description of a detailed multivariate population balance model to describe the structure and composition of silica nanoparticles. Silica nanoparticles are formed by the interaction of silicic acid monomers (Si(OH) 4)in the gas-phase. A detailed numerical study of a stochastic particle algorithm for the(More)
