SLURRY PIPE LINE RESEARCH--KEY TO FUTURE SOLIDS PIPE LINE TRANSPORT

A discussion of research and development work by Williams Brothers Engineering Co. on movement of slurries through a pipeline system covers slurry characteristics; operational characteristics (head loss, wear of pipe wall, shutdown and startup factors, critical angle or slope, and minimum safe operating velocity to maintain homogeneous flow); cost analysis models; advantages of slurry pipelines; tables of commercial slurry pipelines; and typical transportation rates by different modes of transportation.
