    ABSTRACT: In the work being presented, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis on fluidized bed gasification of rice husk has been carried out. The multiphase Eulerian model was undertaken in the analysis. Due to the lack of computational space, two dimensional models of fluidized bed were created. The objective of the investigation was to study the effect of variation on velocity with varying particle sizes. The quality of synthesis gas was also taken into account. The inlet’s superficial velocity was varied from 0.2 m/s to 1.2 m/s and diameter of rice husk varied from 0.0438 mm to 4.38 mm. Based on obtained results, this may be concluded that minimum fluidization velocity decreases with increase in diameter of rice husk. The carbon conversion was found to be maximum for 0.7 m/s velocity and carbon conversion increased for other velocities up to 96.9%. The analysis was carried out using ANSYS FLUENT 14.0 non-commercial code.
