A systematic development of constitutive models within a generic modelling framework has been developed for use in design, analysis and simulation of crystallization operations. The framework contains a tool for model identification connected with a generic crystallizer modelling tool-box, a tool for data handling and translation as well as model application features. Through this framework it is possible, for a wide range of crystallization processes, to generate the necessary problem-system specific models; to identify the parameters for constitutive models; and to handle or translate raw crystallization data. Application of the systematic framework is highlighted through a sucrose crystallization case study, for which the parameters for nucleation and crystal growth are first estimated from the available measured data and are then applied to study the crystallization operation. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
