Title:
Experimental investigation of pressure drop in packed beds of irregular shaped wood particles 
Abstract:
The knowledge of the pressure drop across a packed bed of irregular shaped wood particles is of greatimportance for achieving optimal control and maximum efficiency in many applications, such as wooddrying, pyrolysis, gasification and combustion. In this work the effect of porosity, average particle size andmain particle orientation on the pressure drop in a packed bed is investigated. To this end, particle sizedistributions and porosities are determined experimentally.Based on the experimental...    »
