Mass Transfer around Active Particles in Fluidized Beds

  title={Mass Transfer around Active Particles in Fluidized Beds},
  author={F. Scala},
Fluidized beds are extensively used in a number of gas-solid applications where significant heat and/or mass transfer rates are needed. The design and modelling of such processes requires the precise knowledge of the heat and mass transfer coefficients around immersed objects in the fluidized bed. Thus, it is not surprising that since the early spreading of the fluidized bed technology a considerable experimental and theoretical activity on this topic has been reported in the literature, mostly… Expand

Integrating rate based models into multi-objective optimisation of process designs using surrogate models
A global surrogate model (SUMO) of a RBM was successfully generated to allow its incorporation into a process design & optimisation (PDO) tool which makes use of an evolutionary MOO, showing that kinetic limitations have significant influence on the result already for standard bulk gas chemical components.
