Mesoscale models for physical and chemical processes

This chapter illustrates and discusses some of the most widely used mesoscale models for describing particulate processes. The reader should keep in mind that the chapter is not a comprehensive discussion of all the possible mesoscale models, but is simply a collection of some example models, used in this context to highlight the major issues typically encountered in the simulation of multiphase systems. Although some of the models illustrated in the next sections have general validity, they typically assume slightly different forms when applied to the simulation of solid–liquid systems (e.g. crystallization and precipitation processes), solid–gas systems (e.g. fluidized suspensions, aerosol ...
