Abstract

A model is developed for slugging fluidized bed catalytic reaction which improves on the model of Hovmand and Davidson by incorporating the solids mixing. The model parallels the countercurrent backmixing model of Fryer and Potter. Solids mixing is accounted for by the model of Thiel and Potter which assumes the rising slug is followed by a well‐mixed wake into and out of which solids flow at a rate determined by the rise velocity of the slug. Comparison is made with experimental data reported by Hovmand and Davidson with good results.
