In the paper, the fluctuation characteristics of the solids volume fraction in a CFB are evaluated from measurements and Eulerian-Eulerian CFD simulations. In both cases, similarly large fluctuations are observed in the intermediate voidage range whereas dense and dilute suspension regions are more uniform, as expected. The frequency distributions of solids volume fraction are classified to represent three different suspension density regimes: dilute, dense and intermediate “bimodal” regimes.
