Experimentally measured values for the minimum fluidization velocities and time averaged local surface heat transfer coefficients are provided for 16 different cases of fluidizing conditions for gas-solid dense fluidized beds. Semi-empirical Correlations for the minimum fluidization velocity and the heat transfer coefficient at minimum fluidization velocities are provided. The implications of the Peclet number dependence in terms of diffusion and convection is discussed.
