The purpose of this research was to examine heat transfer in wall-heated and wall-cooled packed beds. In previous research at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, cooling was found to trend higher than heating. Through changes in the computer model, calculated temperature profiles were closer to experimental profiles. When changing the experimental procedure to reduce re-packings, the trends in parameters were less scattered. Using these alterations, heating and cooling were found to be more similar than what was observed in the past.
