We describe a PC-based computer model which simulates the 3-dimensional dynamic behavior of multiple interacting bubbles in bubbling and slugging fluidized beds. We show that this model can predict important performance-related features such as bubble diameter, slug length, bubble coalescence rate, and global circulation patterns. A useful characteristic of this model is that it can be used to simulate bed behavior in near-real time.
