Description: Computer-aided simulation of gas flow and combustion has become a well-established analysis and optimisation tool for power plant engineering. However, the simulation of fluidised beds is still a challenging task due to the physical complexity of dense particle flows. The article presents the 3-dimensional multiphase particle-in-cell (MP-PIC) simulation of combusting gas and particle flow within the Duisburg 250 MW Circulating Fluidised Bed Combustion chamber (CFBC).
