Objectives:
Characterizing the Mixing Behavior of Particles in a Jiggle Bed Reactor (JBR)
(Fundamental Studies on JBR and its Applications)

Importance
The JBR is a recent innovation for conducting fluidization in a small-scale lab setting. It has the potential to study catalysis and particle mixing before constructing larger scale pilot operations. However, little is known for the mixing behavior of the substances during operations and applications of the JBR. My study will hopefully lay some good foundations for future researchers to understand the operating principles of the JBR, thus, optimizing future JBR experiments and opening new fields of its applications.
