A simulation model is proposed for the breakup process of drops and the distribution of resultant daughter drops in an agitated tank, in order to account for the effect of liquid turbulence around drops. The variation of drop size distribution with time after the start of agitation was measured and compared with that predicted by the proposed model. This model is found to be capable of predicting the breakup process.
