Research Topics

  • Modeling of structure-forming processes in fluidized beds, e.g., layering granulation, coating, and agglomeration
    • macroscopic process models based on population balances
    • microscopic process models (single particle scale) using a Monte Carlo method
  • Growth regimes (layering growth or agglomeration) in spray fluidized bed processes
  • Inline measurement techniques for the particle moisture content in structure-forming fluidized bed processes
