DEVELOPMENTS IN WATER SCIENCE, 6. PIPELINE DESIGN FOR WATER ENGINEERS. CHAPTER 5. INTRODUCTION TO SOLIDS PIPING

A brief description is given of factors affecting the transport of solids, particularly particle size of material and velocity of the transporting liquid. A method is given for calculating head loss for a heterogeneous mixture, to effect maximum economy of a pipeline system. Formulae are included for determining minimum head-loss and critical deposit velocities, and the drag coefficient of particles. The author considers factors affecting the economics of pipeline transport, and the effects of distance on solids piping cost are illustrated. Finally, a discussion is included of transport in containers, and the need for further research in this field is emphasised. (TRRL)
