Numerical simulations using the Two Fluid Model were performed for 2D gas-solid fluidized beds with and without immersed horizontal tubes. The results were compared with experimental data available in the literature. Different techniques of extracting the time-averaged values of pressure drop and bed expansion and the influence of averaging time were investigated. Furthermore, the influence of tubes on the solids motion and distribution were studied.
