This paper presents a 3-dimensional model for fuel mixing in fluidized bed combustors. The model accounts for the mixing patterns experimentally shown to govern the mixing in the different zones of the riser and the return leg and can be applied both under bubbling and circulating regimes. Thus, the semi-empirical basis of the model was previously validated in different large-scale fluidized bed combustors and is combined with a model for fuel particle conversion to obtain the fuel concentration. Results obtained with the model are compared with experimental data from the Chalmers 12 MWth CFB combustor, yielding reasonably agreement.
