    Although great progress has been made in modeling the gas fluidization of Geldart B and D particles and dilute gas−solid flow by standard Eulerian approach, researchers have shown that, because of the limitation of computational resources and the formation of subgrid-scale (SGS) heterogeneous structures, Eulerian model with a suitable SGS model for constitutive law is necessary to simulate the hydrodynamics of large-scale gas-fluidized beds containing Geldart A particles. In this article, a state-of-the-art review of Eulerian modeling of Geldart A particles in gas-fluidized beds is presented. The available methods for establishing SGS models are classified into six categories, that is, empirical correlation method, scaling factor method, structure-based method, modified Syamlal and O’Brien drag correlation method, EMMS-model-based method, and correlative multiscale method. The basic ideas of those methods, as well as their advant
