讲座题目:Multiscale CFD Simulations of Fluidization Dynamics: Bubbles, Mixing and Reactor Scaling
Abstract: Fluidized bed reactors find many applications in the energy and chemical industries, including combustion, gasification and catalytic reactors, because of their superior mixing characteristics. Experimental studies of these reactors are hampered by an environment hostile to most diagnostics, and optimal design especially for new applications is a significant engineering challenge. CFD offers a promising alternative. We will discuss recent development in approaches using the two-fluid model, offering a balance between computation efficiency and accuracy. Following a discussion of its fundamentals, we will show how critical submodels for particle-scale dynamics and their interactions with the gas and reactor walls are constructed and validated, and how computational schemes are improved achieving efficiency that allows for practical scale simulations. Results are used to examine bubble dynamics and coalescence, and their impact on solids mixing. Novel computational diagnostics are proposed and applied to discern gas flow distribution, mixing time scales and impact of design and operating conditions on fuel conversion. Results are also used to develop new scaling and reduced models. The use of discrete element methods to develop elaborate submodels is reviewed.
