Flotation Process and Computational Modeling

Buchmann, M.; Draw, M.; Rzehak, R.; van den Boogaart, K. G.; Rudolph, M.

Results on modeling and simulation of flotation processes obtained by groups of Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf and Helmholtz Institute Freiberg for Resource Technologygroups are shown. These comprise a flotation kinetic model based on the multilayer structure and van der Waals interactions, and a hydrodynamic model using the Eularian multiphase framework. Unfortunately, a full validation of the combined model for data from a real flotation system was not possible yet due to numerical stability issues.
