- Three-dimensional hydrodynamic models for gas-solids flow are developed and used to compute bubble and solids motion in rectangular fluidized beds. Our computed results demonstrate the significance and necessity for three-dimensional models of hydrodynamics and erosion in fluidized-bed combustors. A kinetic theory model for erosion using Finnie`s single-particle ductile erosion model was used to compute erosion in a rectangular fluidized bed containing a single tube. Comparison of two-dimensional and three-dimensional computed hydrodynamics, erosion rates, and patterns clearly show the superiority of three-dimensional modeling.
