The CFD-DEM coupled approach was used to simulate the gas-solid reacting flows in a lab-scale fluidized-bed reactor for syngas-to-methane (STM) process. The simulation results captured the major features of the reactor performance including unwanted defluidization. The fluidized-bed reactor showed good performances, such as in preventing the catalyst particles from overheating and sintering.
