Presentation / Conference
KARNIK, A., RANGARAJAN, A. and TANDON, A. 2013. Numerical investigation of the effect of bed height and coefficient of restitution on the minimum fluidization velocity of a cylindrical fluidized bed. Presented at the 8th International conference on multiphase flow (ICMF 2013), 26-31 May 2013, Jeju, Korea.

Numerical simulation for 4 different ratios of initial bed heights (H) to base diameter (D), were performed; viz. 0.5, 1, 2 and 3. Glass beads of density 2600kg/m3 and with an average diameter of 550μm were used for all the simulations. Simulations w...
