Title

A Radial Void Fraction Correlation for Packed Bed Tubes

Abstract

The radial void fraction distribution of equal sized spheres in cylindrical packed bed tubes with low diameter aspect ratios (1 ≤ D/d ≤ 2) is determined from the spheres' center coordinates, the local radial void faction and the radial positions within the tubes. a correlation that closely predicts the local radial void fraction at a radial position is determined from the radial void fraction distributions. the correlation is a function of the diameter aspect ratio and the radial position in the cylindrical packed bed tubes.
