In this work, we show that straight forward extensions of the existing techniques to solve 2-d population balance equations (PBEs) for particle breakup result in very high numerical dispersion, particularly in directions perpendicular to the direction of evolution of population. These extensions also fail to predict formation of particles of uniform composition at steady state for simultaneous breakup and aggregation of particles, starting with particles of both uniform and non-uniform… CONTINUE READING
