Flow behavior of coarse-grained slurry depends generally on particle size, shape, density and concentration. The present paper describes the results of experimental investigation of the model coarsegrained slurries on the pipe loop of inner diameter 36 mm with smooth pipes. Graded pebble gravel and glass balls conveyed in water were studied. Research was focused on evaluation of the effect of slurry velocity and concentration on hydraulic gradient versus slurry velocity relationship and the slurry flow behavior. Particle distribution in the pipe vertical cross section and motion of particles along the pipe bottom were studied in a transparent pipe section.
