CONCENTRATION DISTRIBUTION OF COARSE-GRAINED PARTICLE-WATER MIXTURE IN HORIZONTAL PIPE
Vlasak P., Chara Z., Konfršt J., Krupička J.
pages 730 - 736, full text

The paper describes the results of coarse-grained particle-water mixture measurements in an experimental pipeline loop of inner diameter 100 mm. Graded basalt pebbles of mean diameter 11 mm, conveyed by water, were investigated. The concentration distribution measurements were carried out with application of gamma-ray based device. Presented results refer to the effect of mixture velocity and overall concentration on chord-averaged concentration and local concentration distribution in the horizontal pipe. The study revealed that the coarse-grained particle-water mixtures were significantly stratified, solid particles moved principally close to the pipe invert, for higher and moderate flow velocities saltation becomes dominant mode of the sediment transport.
