Abstract

The convection heat transfer in particle curtains was studied using a combination of experiments and CFD simulations. The Eulerian-Eulerian approach of CFD has been used to simulate particle curtains. Experiments were conducted with glass beads (290 and 400 µm in mean diameter) flowing through a 20×150mm slot at different mass flow rates (0.06-0.135kg/s). The centreline temperature of particle curtains was determined experimentally using infrared photography. Effects of mass flow rate and particle size on heat transfer have been investigated.
