BFB FLUIDIZED BED - How to find Umf?
Hello CFD peers!

I am trying to simulate a bubbling fluidized bed using the
Eulerian 2phase flow (solid-gas)
Gidaspow interaction

Does anyone know how to find the minimum fluidization velocity using FLUENT?

For some reason, even when I zero all the velocities (initial condition, inlet velocity), it keeps on flowing.

Any help?!?!
Thank you!
