The conference was designed to address both fundamental and applied aspects of circulating fluidized beds and fluidized bed systems. Arastoopour’s lecture titled, CFD Modeling of CFB: From Kinetic Theory to Turbulence, Heat Transfer, and Poly-Dispersed Systems, was based on a paper he co-authored with Dimitri Gidaspow, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of the IIT Chemical and Biological Engineering Department.
