In this article the results of the application of two numerical approaches - the Method of Moments and the nodal method - for the prediction of the evaporation phenomena in the synthesis of nanoparticles are presented and compared, in order to evaluate the limits of the moment methods and to determine the usability of the method in plasma environments (i.e. high temperatures and steep gradients). Furthermore, a new closure term is introduced in the Method of Moments, in order to consider the disappearance of the particles due to the evaporation process. The Nodal Method is used as a benchmark for the Method of Moments.

Abstract

In this article the results of the application of two numerical approaches - the Method of Moments and the nodal method - for the prediction of the evaporation phenomena in the synthesis of nanoparticles are presented and compared, in order to evaluate the limits of the moment methods and to determine the usability of the method in plasma environments (i.e. high temperatures and steep gradients). Furthermore, a new closure term is introduced in the Method of Moments, in order to consider the disappearance of the particles due to the evaporation process. The Nodal Method is used as a benchmark for the Method of Moments.
