Abstract

The scaling rules for fluidisation are obtained from a closed formulation of the equations of change that incorporates a fluid dynamic mechanism for particle pressure. The rules are compatible with previous ones, based on formulations that omit particle pressure, thereby extending their validity to gas fluidised fine powders and liquid systems that display a region of stable homogeneous behaviour.
