Time-averaged modelling of CFBs: Analysis of the terms in the momentum equations

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    The features of the terms in the time-averaged momentum equation for the solid phase are examined for three CFB units ranging from a laboratory-scale unit to a small CFB boiler. The CFD simulations were based on the Eulerian granular model of the Fluent software. The time-averaged terms calculated during the time-dependent simulations are analysed and conclusions on their relative importance are drawn. An analysis of the terms in the vertical solids momentum equation in the central region of a CFB is presented.
