Effect of the coordination number of the pore-network structure on the transport and deposition of colloidal particles in porous media was investigated. Applying with the orthogonal collocation principle and the pseudo-spectral method based on the Chebyshev polynomial, the complete solutions of the population balance equations describing the deposited particles, the suspended particles and the unblocked pore throats of porous media were obtained for the simple square network and the capillary tube network. It is shown that the network structure of porous media may significantly affect filtration rate, and therefore the effluent concentration and pressure drop. The filter with a capillary tube network structure owns higher filter coefficient than that of the filter with a simple square network structure. Theoretical predictions for different influent concentrations of particles, different flow rates and the case of blocking occurred in the filter bed are in agreement with the available experimental data. ? 2002 Elsevier Science B.V.
