A theoretical model of particle agglomeration was developed to investigate the adhesive force between contiguous coal particles in CWM agglomerate. While heating bituminous coal to about $400^{\circ}C$ or above, the transient occurrence of plastic behavior of coal particles can be observed. The adhesive force in the process of agglomeration of coal particles was found to be proportional to the duration of plasticity of the particles. In the research, how the heating rate and the particle size distribution of CWM fuel influenced the formation of the agglomerate in CWM fuel at the heat-up stage was investigated by the model of particle agglomeration. Simulation program used to this experiment was RKG method and was programmed by Fortran. It was represented that by the model of particle agglomeration, the adhesive force in the process of the particle agglomeration in CWM fuel was inversely proportional to the heating rate but proportional to particle size.
