#187 - Fundamentals of Fluidization I: In Honor of Prof. Bob Pfeffer on the Occasion of His 70th Birthday (03B00)
The session will cover topics in all aspects of fluidization and fluid particle systems involving gas/solid, liquid/solid, and gas/liquid/solid phases. Papers presenting research related to experimental, analytical, and computational approaches in elucidating the mechanism of reactive and non-reactive fluid-particle interactions and their effects on the flow systems are invited.
