This chapter systematically reviews the hydrodynamics of plasma fluidized bed and its progress. Firstly, the hydrodynamics of plasma spouted bed is introduced from the aspects of minimum spouted velocity, spoutable height, pressure drop and particle attrition, and the relevant formulas are given. Finally, the hydrodynamics of plasma fluidized bed was analyzed.
