To help design a mild-gasifier, a reactive multiphase flow computational model has been developed in Part 1 using Eulerian-Eulerian method to investigate the thermal-flow and gasification process inside a conceptual, hybrid entrained-flow and fluidized-bed mild-gasifier. In Part 2, the results of the verifications and the progressive development from simple conditions without particles and reactions to complicated conditions with full reactive multiphase flow are presented. Development of the model starts from simulating single-phase turbulent flow and heat transfer in order to understand the thermal-flow behavior, followed by introducing seven global, homogeneous gasification reactions progressively added one equation at a time. Finally, the particles are introduced, and heterogeneous reactions are added in a granular flow field. The mass-weighted, adiabatic flame temperature is validated through theoretical calculation and the minimum fluidization velocity is found to be close to Ergun’s correlation. Furthermore, the predicted exit species composition is consistent with the equilibrium values.
