Gas–solid fluidized bed reactor is widely used in industrial processes like oil catalytic cracking, coal combustion, and flue gas desulfurization. On account of the complexity of multiscale, multipattern, and multiphase coupling (Ge et al. in CIESC J 61(7):1613–1620, 2010 [1]), in order to guide the design, amplification, and operational optimization of reactor, mathematical modeling, and numerical simulation have unshirkable responsibility.
