Ask the Expert - Gas-solid Flow Modeling with ANSYS CFD

Engineering simulations of fluidized beds concern phenomenon spanning a wide range of length scales. Length scales range from the size of a particle, through the size of spargers, baffles and finally to scale of the equipment. Besides flow, additional processes such as heat transfer, heterogeneous and homogeneous reactions are important in several scenarios. In this webinar we will review various models for gas solid flows in ANSYS CFD 13.0. We will demonstrate how models in ANSYS CFD can be used efficiently to address engineering problems in fluidized beds and other gas-solid flow problem. Using the recently concluded “NETL Fluidization modeling challenge problem” as one of the examples, we will examine the various models available in ANSYS CFD and how they can be applied to address key engineering questions.
