Diffusion of particles in a homogeneous pseudofluidized bed


The coefficients of longitudinal and transverse diffusion of the particles in a pseudofluidized bed are calculated for an arbitrary value of the Reynolds number characterizing the flow of the pseudofluidizing medium around the particles. The theory is compared with experiment.
