The Velocity of Dynamic Waves in Fluidised Beds
A simple expression for the velocity of dynamic waves in fluidised suspensions that has been derived solely in terms of the equilibrium fluid-particle interaction force parameters, is shown to be in close agreement with direct measurements made under incipient fluidisation conditions; further support is provided by the extensive minimum bubbling point data reported for both gas and liquid fluidised systems and other reported observations of fluidisation quality.
