Modeling spray drying is based on the behavior of individual droplets involved in the process. The drying history of single droplets is generalized to the entire spray by incorporating drying kinetics equations into Euler–Lagrange models of spray drying process. The morphological evolution of single droplet is determined by parameters of the drying agent and properties of solid material in the droplet. In this study, the possible causes for bubble inception are discussed and different morphological evolutions and deformations are examined. A novel mathematical model of single droplet containing insoluble nanoscale particles and internal bubble has been developed and parametrically studied.
