Title: Spectral methods applied to fluidized bed combustors. Final report

The objective of this project was to develop methods for characterizing fuels and sorbents from time-series data obtained during transient operation of fluidized bed boilers. These methods aimed at determining time constants for devolatilization and char burnout using carbon dioxide (CO{sub 2}) profiles and from time constants for the calcination and sulfation processes using CO{sub 2} and sulfur dioxide (SO{sub 2}) profiles.
