Paper Title:
Fluid Dynamic Study of the Fluidized Bed Wit Jambu Seeds (Sphilantes oleracea L.)
  Abstract

This work has as objective the study experimental and computational of the hydrodynamics of gas-solid fluidized bed. The gas-solid fluidized beds present important applications in chemical industry; among typical examples of fluidized beds some applications could be outlined: the syntheses and catalytic reactions, the catalytic regeneration, the combustion and gasification of coal, coating, drying, etc. The simulated data were obtained through the commercial CFD (Computational fluid dynamics), and the results were compared to those obtained by experiments conducted in a fluidized bed, containing jambu seeds (Sphilantes oleracea L.) of 772.21  2.98 μm in diameter, sphericity de 0.45  0.0066, bulk density 1130.8 ± 0.22 Kg/m3 and with porosity 0.2303  0.0099. In this work the porosity profile and characteristic curve of fluidized bed were calculated by using an Eulerian multiphase model. The comparisons showed a very good agreement between experimental and simulation results.
