Models for roll compaction of dry pharmaceutical powders can optimise production of tablets. Analytical methods provide insight but require significant simplification. The boundary condition at the rolls is largely unknown; an analytical approach has been pursued to investigate the possible effect of the boundary condition. One boundary condition appears to predict experimental results well.
