Computational fluid dynamics: applications in pharmaceutical technology

Ivana Masic, Jelena Parojcic and Zorica Djuric,     Department of Pharmaceutical Technology Cosmetology, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Belgrade

Abstract:

This chapter introduces the concept of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and its applications in pharmaceutical technology. Basic theoretical explanations on the mathematics of fluid flow and numerical grids are provided. CFD is a versatile tool that is mainly used in complex dynamical process characterization. Examples of CFD applications in development of inhalers, analysis of dissolution apparatus hydrodynamics, and fluidized bed process simulations are presented.
