Estimation of turbulent diffusion coefficients in a CFB on basis of transient CFD simulations

Abstract

Turbulent diffusion of gas components (e.g., oxygen and volatile matter) and dispersion of solid fuel particles strongly affect the combustion process in a circulating fluidized bed (CFB). A deeper understanding of these mixing processes would improve our possibilities to model CFB combustion. In the present paper, fluctuation characteristics obtained as a result of transient CFD simulations of two CFBs are presented. A simple estimate of the diffusion coefficient can be determined based on the velocity fluctuations and the Lagrangian time scale. Here, the Lagrangian time scale is estimated by the Eulerian time scale, which is determined by auto-correlating time series data from a number of monitoring points
