THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION ON THE WEAR OF PIPELINE CAUSED BY HYDRAULIC TRANSPORT

The economy of hydraulic transport, especially for longer transporting distances, is highly affected by the life endurance of the pipeline. The paper deals with the examination of the wear of a straight pipe, determining the relationship between the wear and the main characteristics of hydraulic transport and giving a method to determine beforehand the economic effect of pipe wear. It describes a method to measure pipe wear and an equipment constructed at the technical University of Miskole as well as the measuring results obtained for different pipes and materials to be transported. The measurement is based on the change of pipe weight. /Author/TRRL/
