The complete segregation model, already successfully tested for binary-solid liquid fluidised beds of smooth rigid particles, has been applied to fluidised bed bioreactors. Qualitative comparison with reported experimental behaviour has shown the capability of the model to predict solid mixing and segregation in these specific types of fluidised beds.
