### A BIMODAL TEMOM MODEL FOR PARTICLE BROWNIAN COAGULATION IN THE CONTINUUM-SLIP REGIME

**ABSTRACT**

In this paper, a bimodal Taylor-series expansion moment of method is proposed to deal with Brownian coagulation in the continuum-slip regime, where the non-linear terms in the Cunningham correction factor is approximated by Taylor-series expansion technology. The results show that both the number concentration and volume fraction decrease with time in the smaller mode due to the intra and inter coagulation, and the asymptotic behavior of the larger mode is as same as that in the continuum regime.
