THE EFFECT OF THE DENSITY OF CYLINDRICAL CAPSULES ON THE PRESSURE GRADIENTS IN CAPSULE PIPELINES

The pressure gradient in a capsule pipeline is composed of two components, one of which is proportional to the buoyed density of the capsules and is strongly affected by the capsule-pipe surface conditions; the other is a function only of the capsule velocity, the capsule and pipe diameters and probably of liquid viscosity. Both components may be found for any particular surface conditions by measuring the pressure gradients due to capsule of two densities; these allow calculation of a specific pressure gradient defined as the increase of pressure gradient per unit increase of density.
