In the present study, effects of pressure drop across a distributor on particle motion in fluidized beds are studied numerically and empirically. The discrete element method (DEM) is employed to calculate the motion of individual particle. The predicted pressure drop across the distributor required to achieve uniform gas flows agreed well with previous empirical findings.
