Surface-to-bed heat transfer for high-density particles in conical spouted and spout-fluid beds

Yaman, Onur
Külah, Görkem
Bed-to-surface heat transfer experiments from a vertically submerged cylindrical surface were conducted in laboratory-scale (D-c = 25 cm) conical spouted and spout-fluid beds at two different conical angles (31 degrees and 66 degrees) in the high particle density range (2500 kg/m(3) <= sigma(p) <= 6000 kg/m(3)). The effects of the bed design parameters (conical angle and inlet diameter of spouting gas entrance) and operating conditions (static bed height, particle size, density, and spouting and fluidization gas flow rates) on the heat transfer characteristics were investigated in detail. The heat transfer coefficients were shown to be dependent on the density and size of the particles. The minimum stable spouting velocities of the denser and larger particles were higher, which led to higher operational spouting velocities and thereby resulted in higher heat transfer coefficients. The positive effect of increasing the particle diameter on heat transfer was more pronounced in the spout and at the spout-annulus interface, whereas this effect was diminished in the annulus region. The heat transfer coefficient increased with increasing spouting gas velocity up to 1.0U(ms)-1.1U(ms), beyond which no significant change was observed regardless of the particle type. The heat transfer coefficient in the annulus decreased with increasing conical angle because of reduced particle circulation. The spout-fluid operation increased the heat transfer coefficient by a maximum of 10% at the expense of a significant increase of the total gas flow rate. This result was attributed to the inability of the fluidizing gas to penetrate the annulus. An empirical correlation for the average heat transfer coefficient in the annulus was also proposed based on the data obtained in this work.

Thermal lattice scattering mobility and carrier effective mass in intrinsic Tl2InGaTe4 single crystals
Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (IOP Publishing, 2007-04-18)
Systematic structural, dark electrical resistivity and Hall coefficient measurements have been carried out on n- type Tl2InGaTe4 single crystals. The data from x- ray powder diffraction allowed determination of the tetragonal unit cell lattice parameters. Analysis of the electrical resistivity and carrier concentration, which was recorded in the temperature range 210 - 350 K, reveals the intrinsic type of conduction with an average energy band gap of 0.85 eV. The temperature- dependent Hall mobility was obs...
Reflectance spectra and refractive index of a Nd : YAG laser-oxidized Si surface
Aygun, G; Atanassova, E; Turan, Raşit; Babeva, T (Elsevier BV, 2005-02-15)
The reflectance spectra and refractive index of Nd:YAG laser-oxidized SiO2 layers with thicknesses from 15 to 75 nm have been investigated with respect to the laser beam energy density and substrate temperature. Thickness and refractive index of films have been determined from reflectance measurements at normal light incidence in the spectral range 300-800 nm. It was found that the oxide-growth conditions at higher substrate temperatures and laser powers greater than 3.36 J cm(-2) provides a better film qua...
Composition-tuned band gap energy and refractive index in GaSxSe1-x layered mixed crystals
IŞIK, MEHMET; Hasanlı, Nızamı (Elsevier BV, 2017-04-01)
Transmission and reflection measurements on GaSxSe1-x mixed crystals (0 <= x <= 1) were carried out in the 400-1000 nm spectral range. Band gap energies of the studied crystals were obtained using the derivative spectra of transmittance and reflectance. The compositional dependence of band gap energy revealed that as sulfur (selenium) composition is increased (decreased) in the mixed crystals, band gap energy increases quadratically from 1.99 eV (GaSe) to 2.55 eV (GaS). Spectral dependencies of refractive i...
Excitation intensity and temperature-dependent photoluminescence and optical absorption in Tl4Ga3InSe8 layered crystals
Goksen, K.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Turan, Raşit (Wiley, 2006-08-01)
Photoluminescence (PL) spectra of Tl4Ga3InSe8 layered crystals grown by Bridgman method have been studied in the wavelength region of 600-750 nm and in the temperature range of 17-68 K. A broad PL band centered at 652 nun (1.90 eV) was observed at T = 17 K. Variations of emission band has been studied as a function of excitation laser intensity in the 0.13 to 55.73 mW cm(-2) range. Radiative transitions from donor level located at 0.19 eV below the bottom of conduction band to shallow acceptor level located...
Dispersive optical constants and temperature tuned band gap energy of Tl2InGaS4 layered crystals
Goksen, K.; Hasanlı, Nızamı; Ozkan, H. (IOP Publishing, 2007-06-27)
The optical properties of Tl2InGaS4 layered single crystals have been studied by means of transmission and reflection measurements in the wavelength range of 400-1100 nm. The analysis of the room temperature absorption data revealed the presence of both optical indirect and direct transitions with band gap energies of 2.35 and 2.54 eV, respectively. Transmission measurements carried out in the temperature range of 10-300 K revealed that the rate of change of the indirect band gap with temperature is gamma =...
