A theoretical model has been developed to predict bed thickness and hydrodynamic behavior of conducting particles in an expanded bed used for heavy metal removal. Two-dimensional model has been developed to predict the particle behavior in expanded bed electrode. Model equations have been developed for electrode thickness and bed porosity. The effect of particle size on metal recovery has been critically examined. The present model simulations have been compared with the experimental data reported in literature.
