Effects of particle size, particle density, gas inlet diameter and static bed height on the stability of operation in conical spouted beds were investigated through analyses of information entropy of pressure fluctuations. In this respect, the maximum information entropy of pressure fluctuations was used as a stability criterion. The results showed that stability of the bed increases with an increase in the maximum entropy. The maximum information entropy of pressure fluctuations increases with increasing particle size and bed height while decreases with increasing gas inlet diameter and particle density. A stability map was also prepared to present the effect of operating parameters on the maximum entropy. Moreover, a correlation for prediction of maximum information entropy was developed to determine the stable operation conditions of conical spouted beds operating with low as well as high density particles.

In this study, the chaotic behavior of gas-solid flow in a laboratory scale conical spouted bed during spraying of water on the sugar particles was investigated using non-linear analyses of pressure fluctuations (PFs) and acoustic emission (AE) signals. The phase space trajectories, recurrence plots (RP) and recurrence quantification analyses (RQA), as powerful non-linear techniques, were used for monitoring of the bed hydrodynamics. It was concluded that the reconstructed phase space trajectories of both P...

The prediction of two-phase pressure drops is important in the design of fluidized beds, heat exchangers, slurry transport lines, annular risers in reactors, driers, and other applications of particulate flows. Experimental data for liquid-solid up-flows through annuli are very limited. In this study, a correlation was developed for predicting two-phase pressure drops via Euler number (Eutp) for liquid-solid suspension up-flows in the fully developed flow region of an annulus in terms of mixture Reynolds nu...
Investigation of the layering mechanism of agglomerate growth during drum pelletization
Sastry, KVS; Dontula, P; Hoşten, Çetin (Elsevier BV, 2003-02-19)
Conventional drum pelletization circuits exhibit undesirable surging behavior that is known to result from uncontrolled occurrence of the mechanisms of nucleation, coalescence and layering. This study was undertaken to investigate the mechanism of pellet growth by layering. Several laboratory experiments were carried out to delineate the effect of feed moisture content and feed quantity. This paper presents an analysis of the experimental results and a simple model to describe the layering process. (C) 2002...

A data reduction technique is introduced for the evaluation of second virial coefficients of gases at subcritical temperatures. The method makes use of the vapor-liquid equilibrium data, i.e., temperature, saturation pressure, liquid and vapor molar volumes and can be used to obtain second virial coefficients of a wide variety of fluids including polar, associating and quantum gases. The calculated second virial coefficients are in good agreement with their counterparts from literature, which are obtained f...
The method of lines solution of discrete ordinates method for Nongray media experimental
Çayan, Fatma Nihan; Selçuk, Nevin; Department of Chemical Engineering (2006)
A radiation code based on method of lines (MOL) solution of discrete ordinates method (DOM) for the prediction of radiative heat transfer in nongray absorbing-emitting media was developed by incorporation of two different gas spectral radiative property models, namely wide band correlated-k (WBCK) and spectral line-based weighted sum of gray gases (SLW) models. Predictive accuracy and computational efficiency of the developed code were assessed by applying it to the predictions of source term distributions ...
