HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER IN DISPERSED AND POROUS MEDIA

Fluidization of two types of a bidisperse bed with marked bimodality of particle size distribution has been investigated experimentally. The possibility of using the mixture equivalent diameter is shown provided the latter is calculated by the weighted-mean diameter of the particles composing this mixture.
