INCIPIENT ROLLING, SLIDING AND SUSPENSION OF PARTICLES IN HORIZONTAL AND INCLINED TURBULENT FLOW

Methods for calculating the fluid velocity required to initiate sliding, rolling and suspension of single particles in turbulent horizontal and inclined pipe flow were developed and experimentally verified. Force and torque balances which include drag, lift, frictional and gravity effects were used to develop the methods. The theoretically developed methods have been reduced to graphical producers which are easily applied to systems with various particle and fluid properties and to various diameter pipes.
