Gaussian random field based models for the porous structure of pharmaceutical film coatings
Paper in proceedings, 2015

Drug release from oral tablets can be controlled using polymer film coatings, and is determined by the porous structure of the coatings. Our aim is to analyze the transport properties of ethylcellulose/hydroxypropylcellulose (EC/HPC) polymer films using Gaussian random field based models.
