Abstract

Circulating fluidized beds pose considerable challenges to our understanding. Because it is not yet possible to produce ab initio predictions of their complex fluid dynamics, transport and chemical behavior, experimentation remains essential. Because many phenomenological models require empirical input, their quality depends on the accuracy of measurement techniques. Process control and monitoring also require precise experimental data.
