3 – Fluid flow through particle beds

  title={3 – Fluid flow through particle beds},
  author={L. G. Gibilaro},
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the lower velocity limit for fluidization, below which the particles are stationary and in direct contact with their neighbors. Under these conditions the interaction force is insufficient to support the weight of the particles; all that happens is that the fluid, as it rises through the bed, loses energy due to frictional dissipation, resulting in a loss of pressure that is greater than can be accounted for by the progressive increase in gravitational… CONTINUE READING
