OpenQBMM 1.0.0 released!

I am pleased to announce the first stable release of OpenQBMM, which includes the following features:

  • Implementation of the Extended Quadrature Method of Moments for lognormal and gamma kernel density functions.
  • Implementation of univariate population balance solver with kernels for aggregation, breakup and growth, diffusion.
  • pbeFoam – Population balance solver for zero-dimensional problems, mostly used to test kernels.
  • pbeTransportFoam – Population balance solver with transport to address problems where the velocity field of the underlying flow is known and fixed.
  • buoyantPbePimpleFoam – Coupled PBE-flow solver.
  • Verification and validation suite for pbeFoam.
  • Tutorials for pbeTransportFoam.

The code has been tested against OpenFOAM 3.0.x, and is available via our GitHub repository. Installation instructions can be found here.
