Bridging the gap in understanding between the spray drying industry and the numerical modeler on spray drying, Computational Fluid Dynamics Simulation of Spray Dryers: An Engineer's Guide shows how to numerically capture important physical phenomena within a spray drying process using the CFD technique.
It includes numerical strategies to effectively describe these phenomena, which are collated from research work and CFD industrial consultation, in particular to the dairy industry.
Along with showing how to set up models, the book helps readers identify the capabilities and uncertainties of the CFD technique for spray drying.
After briefly covering the basics of CFD, the book discusses airflow modeling, atomization and particle tracking, droplet drying, quality modeling, agglomeration and wall deposition modeling, and simulation validation techniques.
The book also answers questions related to common challenges in industrial applications.
