9780125769709: Population Balances: Theory and Applications to Particulate Systems in Engineering

Engineers encounter particles in a variety of systems. The particles are either naturally present or engineered into these systems. In either case these particles often significantly affect the behavior of such systems. This book provides a framework for analyzing these dispersed phase systems and describes how to synthesize the behavior of the population particles and their environment from the behavior of single particles in their local environments.

Population balances are of key relevance to a very diverse group of scientists, including astrophysicists, high-energy physicists, geophysicists, colloid chemists, biophysicists, materials scientists, chemical engineers, and meteorologists. Chemical engineers have put population balances to most use, with applications in the areas of crystallization; gas-liquid, liquid-liquid, and solid-liquid dispersions; liquid membrane systems; fluidized bed reactors; aerosol reactors; and microbial cultures.

Ramkrishna provides a clear and general treatment of population balances with emphasis on their wide range of applicability. New insight into population balance models incorporating random particle growth, dynamic morphological structure, and complex multivariate formulations with a clear exposition of their mathematical derivation is presented. Population Balances provides the only available treatment of the solution of inverse problems essential for identification of population balance models for breakage and aggregation processes, particle nucleation, growth processes, and more. This book is especially useful for process engineers interested in the simulation and control of particulate systems. Additionally, comprehensive treatment of the stochastic formulation of small systems provides for the modeling of stochastic systems with promising new areas of applications such as the design of sterilization systems and radiation treatment of cancerous tumors.

  • A clear and general treatment of population balances with emphasis on their wide range of applicability. Thus all processes involving solid-fluid and liquid-liquid dispersions, biological populations, etc. are encompassed
  • Provides new insight into population balance models incorporating random particle growth, dynamic morphological structure, and complex multivariate formulations with a clear exposition of their mathematical derivation
  • Presents a wide range of solution techniques, Monte Carlo simulation methods with a lucid exposition of their origin and scope for enhancing computational efficiency
  • An account of self-similar solutions of population balance equations and their significance to the treatment of data on particulate systems
  • The only available treatment of the solution of inverse problems essential for identification of population balance models for breakage and aggregation processes, particle nucleation and growth processes and so on
  • A comprehensive treatment of the stochastic formulation of small systems with several new applications

From the Back Cover:

Population Balances provides a clear and general treatment of population balance models of dispersed phase systems while encompassing their mathematical structure, derivation, formulation, solution, and identification, through inverse problems and stochastic formulations. A wide variety of applications is presented with a focus on both the unifying features of the underlying theory and their wide range of applicability. By doing so, it is the only book to touch upon the treatment of the solution of inverse problems essential for identifying population balance models such as for breakage and aggregation processes, and the stochastic treatment of small populations. It also makes available a wide range of solution techniques (Monte Carlo simulation methods) with a lucid exposition of their origin and scope for enhancing computational efficiency.
