Angular Porosity Distributions in Fixed Packed Beds of Low Diameter Aspect Ratio
The angular porosity distribution for fixed packed beds of monosized spheres in cylindrical containers with low diameter aspect ratios (1 ≤ D/d ≤ 2) is determined from the spheres' center coordinates. by dividing the packed bed into a large number of identical wedge-shaped segments, the angular porosity distribution is established from the local angular porosity and the angular positions within the cylindrical container. a correlation which accurately predicts the local angular porosity is determined from the angular porosity distributions. the correlation is a function of D/d and the angular position in the cylindrical container.
