Much that is new and exciting has developed in the field of fluidization since the publication of this book's first edition - new insights, new understandings, and new predictive methods. In particular, the field is seeing systematic studies of the freeboard region above the dense bed, of high-velocity fine-particle fluidization, and of large-particle systems. As a result, today the term fluidization takes on broader meaning, and experts are developing new, predictive methods to cover this wider range of gas-solid contacting. Fluidization Engineering, Second Edition, expands on its original scope to encompass these new areas and introduces reactor models specifically for these contacting regimes. Completely revised and updated, it is essentially a new book. Its aim is to distill from the thousands of studies those particular developments that are pertinent for the engineer concerned with predictive methods, for the designer, and for the user and potential user of fluidized beds.
