Based on the Eulerian–Eulerian two-fluid continuum approach, an improved unified second-order-moment two-phase turbulence model combining with the kinetic theory of particle collision frictional stress model is developed to simulate the dense gas–particle flows in downer, where the effective coefficient of restitution is incorporated into the particle–particle collision. The interaction term between gas and particle turbulence is fully taken into account by the transport equation of two-phase stress correlation. Hydrodynamics of high density particle flow, measured by Wang et al. [27] are predicted and the simulated results are in good agreement with experimental data. On the conditions of considering the realistic energy dissipation due to frictional stress, particle concentration and particle axial averaged velocity are closely the measured and they are better than without frictional stress model. Furthermore, the particle Reynolds stress is redistributed and the particle temperature is reduced. Effect of frictional stress leads to increase obviously the collision frequency at the outlet and inlet regions and the magnitude of frequency of particle collisions is 102.
