The Two-Fluid Model (TFM) approach to modeling fluid-solid systems holds great promise as a means to simulate arbitrary systems, thus greatly reducing design and scale-up efforts. Unfortunately, comprehensive experimental validations of these models are still in short supply. This work addresses this issue by proposing a framework under which to relate computational fluid dynamics model results with experimental measurements on a one-to-one basis. Specifically this is performed for the case of local solids concentration transients in a bench-scale bubbling fluidized bed. The manner in which this comparison is performed has implications for the conclusions that may be drawn for a given validation effort.
