Interface heat transfer in a moving porous bed is analyzed. This work proposes a set of transport equations for solving problems involving turbulent flow and heat transfer in a moving bed equipment. The device is modeled as a saturated porous matrix in which the solid phase moves with a steady imposed velocity. Additional drag terms appearing in the momentum equation, as well as interfacial heat transfer between phases, are assumed to be a function of the relative velocity between the fluid and solid phases. Results indicate that, as the phases attain velocities of equal order, heat transfer between solid and fluid occurs mainly by the conduction mechanism.
