Abstract
A simulated fluidized-bed heat exchanger with tube banks was visualize d using a neutron radiography system. Observed flow pattern indicated an importance of the tube arrangement. Heat transfer experiment, condu cted simultaneously, indicated a close relationship between the heat t ransfer and flow pattern. The staggered arrangement with relatively sm all pitch has a potential of high heat transfer performance.
