Fluidization and Fluid-Particle Systems (03b)

#87 - Fundamentals of Fluidization (03B01)
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.
