• Flow Parameters: Production of Solids The production of solids is an important parameter from the economic point of view. It gives the amount of dry solids delivered at the pipeline outlet over a certain time period.This is defined as the (volumetric) flow rate of solids at the outlet of a slurry pipeline π  m3  Qs = 2 D V m C vd 3600  hour  4  During a dredging operation the parameters Vm and Cvd are usually measured in a pipeline of known D so that the production of solids given by a solids flow rate can be determined.

• PRODUCTION LIMITATIONSI. Too Short Pipeline: the pump tends to operate outside a normal working range, the pump speed must be lowered to avoid cavitationII. Pipeline Distance Within a Normal Working Range of a Pump: a pump operates at maximum speed and mixture of maximum attainable density is transportedIII. Too Long Pipeline: the pump tends to operate outside a normal working range, the mixture density must be lowered to maintain velocity above the deposition limit in a pipeline October 13, 2004 12 Dredge Pumps and Slurry Transport
