Predicting the behavior of a gas-solid fluidized-bed reactor requires information on the stoichiometry thermodynamics heat and mass transfer reaction rates and flow pattern of the different phases in the reactor (Kunii Levenspiel 1990) Many reactor models have been proposed for fluidized bed reactors Gas-solid fluidized beds are widely applied in many chemical processes involving physical and/or chemical transformations and for this reason they are the subject of intense research in chemical engineering science Over the years researchers have developed a large number of numerical models of gas-fluidized beds that describe gas-solid flow at different levels of

Introduct ion Fluidized beds are extensively used in particulate solid drying because of their high rates of heat and mass transfer Several models have been described in the literature for fluidized bed dryers {Mostafa (1977) Hoebink and Rietma (1980) Viswanathan (1985) Chandran et al (1990) Zahed et al (1995) Mowla et al (1998

A two-phase drying model that linked single-particle mass transfer to macroscopic hydrodynamics in fluidized bed was implemented to verify the effect of flow rate temperature and biomass properties on drying and mass transfer Good agreement was observed between the modelled effective diffusivity and experimental results

The particle flow pattern mixing and granule segregation in a tapered fluidized bed have been studied along with the hydrodynamics At first the bed of varying total mass and granule fractions is fluidized then the bed is defluidized to freeze the composition the bed is sectioned to layers and the composition in each layer is determined by sieving

The information is however not readily available in literature to facilitate an a priori estimation of the drying rate in fluidized bed drying of solids (Kunii and Levenspiel 1991) This is partly due to lack of sufficient experimental data arising out of the specificity of the drying rate to the material and to the drying conditions
