A 'multimodel' for gas-solid reactions in a reacting particle has been applied to a bubbling fluidized bed reactor. The particle is tracked and bed and particle variables are determined continuously. The conservation equations of mass and heat with auxiliary relations are solved in an accelerating particle, which may rise or fall. The effects of bulk pressure, velocity and temperature, and particle diameter are studied. Heat and mass transfer coefficients may fluctuate up to 75% and 148% respectively. Doubling the pressure changes hc by 75% and kc by -45%. Increase in pellet diameter reduces both hc and kc.
