Abstract

Modeling a flow thorough a fluidized bed is a complicated, time-consuming and power-demanding task. However, in some cases such a flow could be simplified as a porous media flow, when we treat it as a fixed bed. This publication presents a comparison between free flow and porous media flow in order to assess the effect on the surface layer erosion.
