fluidized bed reactor material properties

I am simulating the flow in two phase fluidized bed containing liquid and solid.
Is the viscosity of the solid to be set in the properties of the material tab same as the viscosity of the liquid?

Thank you!

Hi there.

Yes. You shall set a small viscosity (~10^-5) in this tab.
The effect of this viscosity is negligible, since there are other phenomena on the solid phase that the granular model takes account of.
