The transient solid velocity analysis in fluidized bed combustor (FBC) freeboard has been critical in the past two decades (Haidin et al 1998). The FBC cold model (6-in ID) was designed and fabricated. The solid transient velocity in FBC freeboard was measured and analyzed with the assistance of the advanced instrumentation. The laser-based Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) was applied to the FBC cold model to visualize the transient solid velocity. A series of transient particle velocity profiles were generated for factorial analysis. In each profile, the particle velocity vectors for 100 position points were in the format of Vx and Vy . Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to determine the significant factors that affect the transient particle velocities, time, and position coordinates. Then, the 1010 factorial design method was used to develop a specific empirical model of transient particle velocity in FBC freeboard which was in the shape of Vx = f1 (t, x, y), and Vy = f2 (t, x, y). This unique factorial analysis method was proved to be very effective and practical to evaluate the experimental conditions and analyze the experimental results in FBC systems.
