Journal Club - Modelling Theme
Christopher Handscomb will give a very brief introduction to the drying of slurry droplets and the associated modelling approaches. He will then be focussing on the following paper,
H. Liang, K. Shinohara, H. Minoshima, K. Matsuhima Chemical Engineering Science, 56, 2205-2213, (2001)
discussing the modelling approach used and comparing the results obtained with those produced by an in-house droplet simulator. He will also refer to a follow-up to this paper which discusses certain problems with the original model and, more worryingly, with some of the results presented:
K. Jorgensen, A. D. Jensen, J. Sloth, K. Dam-Johansen, P. Bach Chemical Engineering Science, 61, 2096-2100, (2006)
There will be an opportunity for discussion at the end of the talk, and all attending are encouraged to read the two papers in advance.
