The Two-Fluid Model was used to study hydrogen production in a fluidized bed membrane reactor using various configurations of vertically immersed membranes (fully selective extraction of hydrogen). The datasets contain the time-averaged properties for phase velocity (U.air, U.particles), hydrogen mole fraction (X.air) and particle phase fractions (alpha.particles). The files can be visualized using Paraview (see www.paraview.org). A state file is supplied as well that allows easy visualization of the hydrogen molar fraction profiles. Short manual for using the state file (Paraview 5.6.0): - Download all files - Paraview > File > Load state - Select state3.pvsm - In "Load State Data File Options" select "Choose file names" - Choose the .vtk file (e.g. VM3close.vtk) - Results should appear and can be interactively explored. (further information regarding the linked journal publication will be updated after acceptance of the manuscript)
