Summary Single bubble injection simulations inside a minimally fluidized bed have been studied widely and are often used to validate the accuracy of different numerical models. Bubble shape, size and voidage distribution are the important parameters that are validated from the experiments. In the present work, the most widely used drag model (Gidaspow’s drag model) is compared to a new proposed slip flow drag model which takes into account the presence of the slip flow regime, often encountered in vacuum fluidized beds and characterised by Knudsen no. (Kn). Shape and size prediction of the bubble evolution inside the bed is carried out numerically by using the two fluid model, comparing the results predicted by the drag models. It is seen that the predictions are different for the two drag models only under high vacuum conditions corresponding to Kn in slip/transition flow regime. The predictions are also found sensitive to pressure gradient in the bed and fluid velocity.
