611 Special Session: To Celebrate Prof. John Grace's Career Long Accomplishments

Wednesday, November 11, 2015: 3:15 PM - 5:45 PM
254B (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Prof. John Grace had dedicated his whole life to scientific research in fluidization and education. His prominent contributions to science and education will be immortal and always be cherished. He has done an extensive research in the area of transient forces on immersed tubes, heat transfer in circulating fluidized beds, hydrodynamics and mixing in high velocity beds, flow regimes in fluidized beds, effects of particle size distribution, reactor modelling, scale-up issues, attrition, electrostatics, non-uniformity of flow through parallel channels, computational fluid dynamics, comparison of alternative techniques for voidage and velocity measurements, and dispersion and inversion phenomena in liquid-fluidized beds Besides, he co-organized scholars to write "Circulating Fluidized Beds". To celebrate his career long accomplishments, this session will provide papers that demonstrates Grace’s legacy in fluidization.
