    A study on modeling of dilute solid gas suspension systems has been made for the purpose of determining the scaling laws for the momentum and masstransfer in particulate suspensions. Two systems are being investigated: interaction of turbulentflow with a gravitational field in draft tube/diverter installed in the freeboard section of a fluidizedbed and that with a vortex flow field produced by a swirling duct section. Instrumentation has been developed for the measurement of air velocities, overall flow rates, particle flux, and density and deposition rates. Continuing study includes extensive measurements with monodispersed suspensions and mixtures of controlled size distributions of particles and improvements in the test systems; validation of scaling relations will include testing at other than roomtemperature and atmosphericpressure. These efforts are complemented by our continuing study of multiphase mechanics. (A)
