The codes implement the population balance equation (PBE) modeling of precipitation from liquid solutions with calcium-silicate-hydrate (C-S-H) an example. Primary nucleation, true catalytic secondary nucleation, and molecular growth are included. PBE is solved using a quadrature method of moments with three nodes and is coupled to a thermodynamic equilibrium speciation code for the estimation of temporal supersaturation ratio. The codes are fully commented line by line and additional details can be accessed through our publication:

PBE simulation integrated with an optimization code in order to estimate the value of unknown model parameters as well as codes for equilibrium speciation calculations considering solid/liquid equilibrium are also available both in the supporting information of the article or upon request.
