With the use of coupled CFD-DEM simulations, the coating yield in a Wurster process was predicted. To increase the computational efficiency a ray tracing spray model was used. You will learn how the ray tracing model is applied to capture the effect of spray drying. Furthermore you will get an insight into which process parameters influence the coating yield and how the process can be optimized.
Stefan Madlmeir is a PhD student in chemical and process engineering since June 2018. As a scientist at RCPE he models transfer phenomena in pharmaceutical manufacturing processes. A focal point of his work are multi-scale approaches with a broad range of applicability.
