Modelling the hydrodynamics of gas/solid flow is important for the design and scale-up of fluidized bed reactors. A novel gas/solid dual-scale model based on lattice gas cellular automata (LGCA) is proposed to describe the macroscopic behaviour through microscopic gas–solid interactions. Solid particles and gas pseudo-particles are aligned in lattices with different scales for solid and gas. In addition to basic LGCA rules, additional rules for collision and propagation are specifically designed for gas–solid systems. The solid’s evolution is then motivated by the temporal and spatial average momentum gained through solid–solid and gas–solid interactions. A statistical method, based on the similarity principle, is derived for the conversion between model parameters and hydrodynamic properties. Simulations for bubbles generated from a vertical jet in a bubbling fluidized bed based on this model agree well with experimental results, as well as with the results of two-fluid approaches and discrete particle simulations.
