When liquid-fluidized particles of radically different sizes and densities mix, the serial (additive volume) model fails to predict the fluidized bed voidage due to contraction of the mixed bed relative to the volumetric sum of the corresponding monocomponent beds. Models are proposed to predict contraction reported in the literature for both upflow and downflow fluidization.
