Abstract: A method for simulation of the roller compaction process using a laboratory scale compaction simulator was developed. The simulation was evaluated using microcrystalline cellulose as model material and ribbon solid fraction and tensile strength as key ribbon properties. When compacted to the same solid fractions, real and simulated ribbons exhibited similar compression behavior and equivalent mechanical properties (tensile strengths). Thus, simulated and real ribbons are expected to result in equivalent granul…
