    The intensification of gas-solids contact in the fuel reactor of a chemical looping combustion system is enhanced with the installation of ring-type internals. This can be a key issue for achieving the necessary fuel conversion rates. Wedged rings, previously designed and tested, were found to...

    new approach for studying the particle dynamics and RTD (residence time distribution) in processes is to formulate stochastic models. A common question to all models for RTD is whether Danckwerts' law for mean residence time holds. In this paper we revisit a Markov process that has been proposed...
