Calculation of filtration of polydisperse suspension in a porous medium
The problem of filtering the suspension in a porous medium is considered. The proposed model for the transport of particles of different sizes is a generalization of deep bed filtration model for a monodisperse suspension with size-exclusion particle capture mechanism. Exact and asymptotic solutions are constructed at the filter inlet and on the concentration front of the suspended and retained particles. Numerical calculation for a suspension with 2-size particles shows that the distribution of deposit in the filter depends on the particle size.
