Physical background:The total pressure gradient: ρ g dh f (P1-P2)/dx = -dP/dx over a pipe -dP = P1 - P2 total pressure differential section of the length dx is composed P2 manometer hose filled with fluid (water) of -dP + dh ρ g f manometric pressure differentialthe static pressure gradient: d(gh)/dx, giving the potentially reversible effect of elevation change on the total pressure gradient in a slurry flow of the density gaining the height h andthe pressure gradient due to friction: -dP/dx - d(gh)/dx that is the irrecoverable energy loss due to friction in inclined slurry flow over the pipe length dx.

• 6. Inclined Flows: Worster-Denny ModelB. Construction of the model for Im:• An inclined flow is a transitional flow between a horizontal flow and a vertical flow.• The hydrostatic effect: all particles in a pipe contribute to the static slurry column; the manometric static head considered in the model = slurry column (in the pipe) – water column (in hoses of different. pressure transmitter).• The frictional effect: the pressure drop due to friction is lower in inclined pipe than in horizontal pipe. The solids effect for inclined flow solids effect in inclined pipe I m ,θ − I f = = cos θ < 1 solids effect in horizon pipe Im − I f October 13, 2004 6 Dredge Pumps and Slurry Transport

• 9. Inclined Flows: Worster-Denny ModelC. Discussion on the Worster-Denny model:• The model predicts the same frictional pressure losses in the ascending and descending pipes of the same inclination angle [cos(0)=cos(-0)]. This means that the model expects the same solids distribution in both pipes. The assumption is correct only for non-stratified flows. solids effect in inclined pipe Im,θ − I f = = cosθ <1 solids effect in horizon pipe Im − I f October 13, 2004 9 Dredge Pumps and Slurry Transport

• 11. Inclined Flows: Two-Layer ModelA. Physical background:• For layered inclined flows the two-layer model is much better predictive tool than the empirical Worster-Denny model. October 13, 2004 11 Dredge Pumps and Slurry Transport
