Abstract: The combination of machine learning and numerical methods has recently become popular in the prediction of macroscopic and microscopic hydrodynamics parameters of bubble column reactors. Such numerical combination can develop a smart multiphase bubble column reactor with the ability of low-cost computational time when considering the big data. However, the accuracy of such models should be improved by optimizing the data parameters. This paper uses an adaptive-network-based fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) to train four big data inputs with a novel integration of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of gas. The results show that the increasing number of input variables improves the intelligence of the ANFIS method up to R = 0.99, and the number of rules during the learning process has a significant effect on the accuracy of this type of modeling. Furthermore, the proper selection of model’s parameters results in higher accuracy in the prediction of the flow characteristics in the column structure.
