Expansion and porosity of an inhomogeneous fluidized bed
Results of an experimental investigation of porosity and expansion of thin fluidized beds are presented and empirical equations are proposed for calculating the thickness of the bed.
KeywordsPorosity Statistical Physic Experimental Investigation Empirical Equation
probability for finding the upper boundary of the bed at a given level
- a, b, c, andl
height of the bed, m
porosity of the bed
velocity of the fluidizing agent, m/sec
The indices are as follows
- 0, L, V
