Vertical forces acting on horizontal disks in a fluidized bed

  • 21 Accesses


Experimental studies of vertical forces were made with a turbulimeter. A dimensionless expression was obtained for the determination of the average vertical forcing acting on horizontal disks submerged in a fluidized bed.
