Abstract: In the framework of the Euler-Euler gas–solid two-fluid model, the particle population balance equation is solved by the direct quadrature method of moment. The dynamic process of ultrafine particle movement and aggregation in an internally circulating fluidized bed is simulated. The distribution of the concentration and velocity of the agglomerates in the flow process is given, and the changes of the moments in the bed are shown. The effects of different breakage coefficients and inlet gas rates on the concentration distribution of agglomerates are compared. The results show that the particle size decreases with the increase of breakage coefficient, and the time required to reach steady fluidization state increases; the higher the inlet velocity, the better the effect of circulating particles in the bed. When there is a certain gas velocity difference between the two sides, the effect of circulating particles in the bed is better.
