COMPARATIVE COAL TRANSPORTATION COSTS: AN ECONOMIC AND ENGINEERING COST ANALYSIS OF TRUCK, BELT, RAIL, BARGE AND COAL SLURRY AND PNEUMATIC PIPELINES. VOLUME 7--PNEUMATIC TRANSPORT
Based on past and current studies, a theoretical analysis of a coal carrying pneumatic pipeline is presented including friction factors, minimim transport velocity, and pipeline telescoping. A 3.5-mile, 200-tph, pilot facility is designed. Cost analyses are presented. These and the design are extrapolated to a 100-mile line, smaller coal sizes and greater throughput.
- Set includes PB-274 379--PB-274 386. Also see RRIS 18 170577, the first volume in RRIS bulletin 7801.
