Work published on gas-solid fluidization since 1986 is reviewed, with emphasis on findings that appear to be new or to represent significant steps forward in advancing the understanding of fluidization phenomena, or which have potential practical implications. Hydrodynamic regimes ranging from bubbling to fast fluidization are addressed. Mixing phenomena and circulating fluidized beds are given special attention.
