Experiments were conducted to identify the angle of inclination of a fluidized bed so that the fluidizing condition could be retained. Experimental set up has been specifically fabricated for this purpose with a provision for measurement of angle of inclination accurately. Further studies were also conducted to identify different flow regimes that appear by using visual inspection technique. It was observed that apart from fixed and fluidized beds three other regimes viz., channel flow, counter flow and circulatory flow were prominent. The angle of inclination with horizontal axis was found to be approximately 70 degrees to retain fluidizing conditions.
