A method to simulate the microscopic (adsorption and nucleation) stage to the macroscopic particle growth stage of precipitation is presented. The method is based on the boundary conditions of the extended Lifshitz-Slyozov, Wagner (LSW) equation that provides integration of the chemical kinetic and continuous formulation. The effect of the four stages of precipitation to the evolution of the system is analyzed.
