An ideal generalized flow regime diagram was proposed for fluid-solids vertical transport systems with no bottom and top restrictions. Such an ideal flow regime diagram was further extended to shed light onto the understanding of the flow regimes and instabilities encountered in bottom- restricted bubbling and circulating fluidized bed systems.
