This invention is accomplished, tested and applied through many summer research stays during 2005 until 2011 at the Institute of Process Engineering (http://www.uni-kl.de/tvt/tvtlehrstuhl/tvtehemalige/tvtattarakih/) and Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics (http://www.itwm.fraunhofer.de/ Transport Phenomena Group/ The University if Kaiserslautern/Germany & published in a series of papers in the European Symposium on Computer-Aided Process Engineering & International Conferences on Population Balance Modeling.

 

The invention is related generally to the field of mathematical & numerical modeling of population balances as a framework for modelling discrete systems. The invention provides an accurate framework for numerical modelling of such discrete systems, which arise naturally in chemical, physical and biological systems. Particular examples are the two-phase chemical reactors (polymer, two-liquid phase, gas-liquid phase & solid-liquid phase), separation processes (solvent liquid extraction, crystallization, gas absorption & distillation), biological systems and aerosol formation. The invented numerical framework introduces the idea of two types of particles: secondary and primary particles, which can fully describe the moments and the shape of the particulate distribution. The interaction of secondary particles can capture discontinuous jumps in the population states as a result of particle splitting, aggregation and nucleation events. The invention provides a hierarchy and evolution in the numerical modelling of discrete systems, which starts by simple one primary and one secondary particles (two-population group model) and evolves to the more complex and rich numerical presentation of the discrete system properties. The invention is already linked to popular commercial CFD solvers such as FLUENT, OPENFOAM and NOGRID. Currently, this discrete population balance model is being coupled to FPM software, which is a property of Fraunhoffer Institute for Industrial mathematics/ Kaiserslautern/ Germany.

The University of Jordan (UJ) participated in the 2017 Arab Water Week (AWW), organized by the Arab Countries Water Utilities Association (ACWUO) from 19 to 23 March, 2017, in the Dead Sea, in conjunction with World Water Day.





The Arab Water Week (AWW) comprises of a variety of events, including a number of trainings, exhibition and this year, for the first time, a competition for university students.
A student team comprised of Esra Abu Zakhm, Abdullah Al Zaben and Noor Al-Khudari, from the School of Engineering has won the 'First University Challenge MENA Region'.

The team will go on to represent the Arab universities in the second phase of the challenge which will be held in Germany from 14 to18 May, 2018, according to the director of UJ's Water, Energy and Environment Center Director (WEEC), Dr. Motasem Saidan.

The Challenge aims to give students the opportunity to apply their knowledge obtained at University to real-life situations, gain new thematic and structural insights in the water and wastewater community as well as improve their team-working skills.

The Conference was attended by over 500 Arab and international experts and specialists in the fields of water from 18 Arab countries, 15 international organizations and scientific research institutions, in addition to 360 international companies interested in sharing their expertise in the field.​
