Population Balance Modelling (PBM)


A Population Balance Model (PBM) is a state-of-the-art modelling methodology used to describe the evolution of a distributed property of interest. BIOMATH's interest is mainly focused on the distribution of particle size throughout a process under study. Modelling size dynamics allows us to understand the continuous (e.g. growth) and/or discrete processes (e.g. aggregation, breakage) shaping a particle size distribution.
