Abstract: a b s t r a c tThe design of fuel feed ports in a large-scale fluidized bed combustor depends on the fuel characteristics and lateral solids mixing. However, the reported values of the effective lateral solids dispersion coefficient (D sr ) are scattered in the broad range of 0.0001-0.1 m 2 /s. With the aim of predicting D sr in wider fluidized beds which is difficult to measure directly or deduce from experimental results in lab-scale facilities, a computational method is proposed. It combines the Eulerian-G…
