I am working on crystallization via particle growth and am using population balance model (SMM) linked with Eulerian multiphase model.
Primary phase is composed of solute (silica) and solvent (water) and the secondary phase has only silica solid crystals.
What I am trying to solve is the following equation:
Solute (aq) → crystal (s)
And I wonder how Fluent calculate the rate of this heterogeneous reaction?
I mean what is the equation behind reaction rate function when we select population-balance? (figure attached)

November 15, 2019 at 5:44 pmDrAmineAnsys EmployeeThe reaction rate is linked to the growth rate of the particles. Check manual for that link.

Wonder if your phase-2 is a SINGLE species ? That's what it seems looking at your Heterogeneous Reaction screenshot.
I believe, EVEN THEN it needs to be defined as a "Mixture" with that ONE species in it ... So that the Reaction "form" would
allow you to select it. This is from our recent experience with a similar problem...
