Fluidized bed combustion
Hey everyone,

I have been working a while on a multiphase case : gas-particle combustion in Fluent, but it seems like everytime the results don't match the experience. I have been reading some articles and tutorials (I am still a beginner :D ), and still i can't find some satisfying results.

Can someone please give me a hint or some files that can help.

I thank you for reading my post and have a nice day ^^

It would be helpful to see what is wrong with your results. The best way to figure this stuff out is to look at the literature. We can only really help you with the fluent aspect of the problem. I am an expert in multiphase modeling with fluent, but I can't help you if all I know is that there is a problem... lol. Berend van Wachem and Jennifer Sinclaire/Jennifer Curtis are two people that specialize in multiphase modeling/fluidized beds. Look up some of their papers to learn mode about modeling/fluidized beds. There is a really good paper in AIChE, but I can't remember the details.
