Deposition and aggregation of small solid particles are encountered in many natural and industrial environments. Whether it be deposition of particles onto a surface immersed in a liquid suspendion or aggregation of individual particles, these processes are of much significance. They are vital to the manufacture of magnetic tape, purification of water using packed bed filters, selective capture of solids, cells and macromolecular species, and many other applications. The book presents a unified approach to the measurement, modelling and simulation of these processes, bringing together the disciplines of colloid and surface chemistry, hydrodynamics, and experimental and computational methods. The text is appropriate for process and environmental engineers in the petrochemical, pharmaceutical, food and mining industries, and postgraduate chemical, civil, environmental health and textile engineering students.
