In this study, we apply the drying model of polymer solution coated on a flat substrate to the spray drying granulation process in formulation. In order to apply the former model to the drying of this spherical object, we consider this spherical object to be a stack of solution films applied on the spherical shell and discuss the drying process of each solution film. As a result, we see that the smaller the radius of curvature of the droplet, the more the fine particles tend to be unevenly distributed on the surface of the droplets during drying.
