    1. Evaluation of Digital Image Discretization Error in Droplet Shape Measurement Using Simulation (pages 243–255)

      Sina Ghaemi, Payam Rahimi and David S. Nobes

      Article first published online: 1 JUN 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.200900069

      In this paper a systematic evaluation of the accuracy of shape parameters derived from image analysis is given. It is shown that the shape parameters exhibit different levels of sensitivity to errors induced by image discretization. A quantitative measure is derived to rank the different shape factors in terms of high sensitivity to non-spherical shape and low sensitivity to errors.

    2. A Simulation Study of Laboratory Scale Ball and Vertical Stirred Mills (pages 256–264)

      Selcuk Samanli, Dilek Cuhadaroglu and Sait Kizgut

      Article first published online: 26 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.200800026

      The aim of this study was to investigate the grindability of solid fossil fuels from a thermal power plant by using a vertical stirred mill and conventional ball mill. The time evolution of particle size and the related energy consumption have been determined. Furthermore, a simulation tool was used to describe the observed behavior.

    3. Computer Simulations as a Tool for Investigating Dust Generation in Bulk Solids Handling Operations (pages 265–274)

      Timothy J. Donohue, Alan W. Roberts, Craig A. Wheeler and William McBride

      Article first published online: 8 JUN 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.200900096

      Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and Discrete Element Modeling (DEM) approaches are applied to the flow of dust in bulk solids handling operations. Granular flow through a chute is modelled and critical values describing air and particle flow are derived. A qualitative as well as quantitative comparison with experimental results gives interesting insights in the capabilities of modern simulation techniques as well as still existing obstacles in obtaining quantitative results.

    4. Electrophoretic Layer-by-Layer Assembly of Biotin/Avidin Functionalized Nanoparticles (pages 275–282)

      Jongeun Ryu, Dietrich Dehlinger, Michael Heller and Thomas Hahn

      Article first published online: 26 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1002/ppsc.200900090

      Biotin-functionalized polystyrene nanoparticles are directed by an electric field and self-assembled on a streptavidin coated microelectrode. An Analysis of Variance quantifies the effect of the process parameters current and deposition time on the assembly results. Furthermore, multilayer structures are formed by successively depositing biotin and neutravidin functionalized nanoparticles.
