INFLUENCE OF ADDED FINE PARTICLES ON THE FLOW STRUCTURE AND THE PRESSURE LOSSES IN SAND-WATER-MIXTURE
It is known from dredging practice that under certain conditions an addition of fine material (like silt or clay) to the sand-water-mixture may cause a reduction of the pressure losses in the pipe line. In order to obtain more detailed information experiments were carried out in a horizontal pipe with an inside diameter of 100 mm. Three types of sand were used and an active sodium bentonite was added, equal to 6.7% of the sand volume. A decrease of the pressure drop was observed, especially for finer material, higher concentrations, and lower to medium velocities. Above a certain velocity an increase of the pressure loss by the addition of bentonite was noted.
