CFD-DEM simulation of circulating fluidized bed

Circulating fluidized beds (CFBs) are of high importance in the chemical, process, plastics, steelmaking and other industries.

Circulating fluidized beds (CFBs) are of high importance in the chemical, process, plastics, steelmaking and other industries. The simulation snapshot shows that in this case, most particle fractions are captured by the first cyclone, while some single particles can escape and are captured by the second cyclone. Velocities of fluid phase and particle phase are depicted.
