In a trickle bed reactor the overall process is steady but bubbles move through the system and gas streams may move around based on where the liquid holds up. Not sure about articles as most are either very academic (so very rigorous) and we don't share our best practice documents on the forum (they're available to our registered users: your University may have access). Most of what I know is from experience, and general observation. n
