The objective of this study is the effect of the crystallization kinetics the crystalline morphology, the germination and the crystalline growth velocity is to improve the management of bioreactors, existing or future, for this, we presented to material conservation equations, the energy and the differential equations of Schneider. We have developed a numerical model to simulate the behavior coupled mold, using the method of finite differences.
