  • Abstract In this paper, we present numerical techniques for one-way coupling of CFD and Population Balance Equations (PBE) based on the incompressible flow solver FeatFlow which is extended with Chien’s Low-Reynolds number k – ɛ turbulence model, and breakage and coalescence closures. The presented implementation ensures strictly conservative treatment of sink and source terms which is enforced even for geometric discretization of the internal coordinate. The validation of our implementation… CONTINUE READING
