Heat transfer in a porous reactor under cross flow is investigated. The reactor is modeled as a porous bed in which the solid phase is moving horizontally and the flow is forced into the bed in a vertical direction. Equations are time-and-volume averaged and the solid phase is considered to have a constant imposed velocity. Additional drag terms appearing the momentum equation are a function of the relative velocity between the fluid and solid phases. Turbulence equations are also affected by the speed of the solid matrix. Results show temperature distributions for several ratios of the solid to fluid speed.
