A method for the determination of the amount of solid particles reaching the wall of a coal gasifier was developed to predict the adhesion phenomena of particles to the furnace wall. Experimental measurements of the rate of arrival (adhesion) at the wall of particles flowing in a straight tube were compared with the numerical results. The experimental arrival rate could be represented numerically by analyzing the simplified two-fluid model. Comparison of the calculated result with the result of Direct Numerical Simulation result confirmed that the thermophoretic force increased the amount of solid particles reaching the wall.
