**A MODEL CALCULATION FOR FLOW RESISTANCE IN THE HYDRAULIC

TRANSPORT OF SAND

Ni Fusheng1, Zhao Lijuan2, Xu Liqun3, W.J. Valsblom4

ABSTRACT

The hydraulic transport of sand is an important process in dredging engineering. An accurate calculation of the flow

resistance of sand when hydraulically transported is a significant part of any reasonable design for a pump-pipeline

transport system. Although there have been a number of empirical formulae proposed by Durand, Condolios, Jufin,

Wilson, GIW, etc., the flow resistance calculation still needs to be subjected to further investigation. A model that is

widely used in coal hydraulic transport, called the Wasp model is introduced in this paper. The model classifies

particles as homogeneously distributed particles and heterogeneously distributed bed particles. Water and the

suspended particles form the so called “two-phase carrying fluid” or “vehicle” and transport the heterogeneous bed

particles. This paper tries to apply a model, proposed by Wasp and used in coal slurry, to the resistance calculation

for the hydraulic transport of sand. The model is checked by our measured data from the laboratory stand of sand

transport at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. Results show that the model can result in a reasonable

prediction for the resistance of small particles slurry. However, like the other popular models, it could not give a

satisfactory prediction for coarse sand transport either. The accuracy given by the Wasp model actually depends on

the modeling of the homogeneous slurry and the modeling of the heterogeneous slurry.

Keywords: Sand hydraulic transport, flow resistance, Wasp model.

INTRODUCTION

Solids transported in dredging engineering can be mud, clay, sand, gravel, coral reef or other materials. Different

mechanisms are active in the solid-liquid mixture flow, which has led in a great number of empirical models to

describe the mechanisms governing the slurry flow regime in the past decades (Durand 1953a,b, Wilson 1976, 1997,

Matousek 1997). Generally speaking, solids hydraulic transport can be conceptually divided into fully-stratified,

partially-stratified and fully-suspended flow (Sundqvist et al. 1997). The most common type of slurry flow is the

partially-stratified or heterogeneous case, in which turbulent suspension and inter-granular contact are the two

significant mechanisms of particle support. Due to the complexity of slurry flow, however, the modeling of the

interaction between solids and the carrying liquid is still subject to further study. That is why the modeling of slurry

flow resistance has always been an important subject in dredging and other solid hydraulic transport industries. This

paper tries to apply a model, proposed by Wasp and used in coal slurry, to the resistance calculation for the hydraulic

transport of sand. The model is checked by our measured data from the laboratory stand of sand transport at Delft

WASP MODEL Division of Slurry Flow Based on coal slurry data accumulated over 13 years of experiments and actual 102-mile pipeline transport. 2002). the total pressure loss per unit pipe length J is the sum of the losses due to the “vehicle” and the “Durand” flow components: J = J du + J ve (1) where J du and J ve denote the pressure loss gradients of the “vehicle” and the heterogeneous slurry.8( ω β ku* ) denotes solid settling velocity.92 and at y/D=0. Wasp proposed to separate the slurry flow into two components: a vertically homogeneous slurry flow called a “vehicle” and a vertically heterogeneous slurry called a “Durand” flow (Wasp 1963. and . respectively. The following equation is usually used to determine the division of the two portions: log where ω Ctop Cmid = −1. The “vehicle” volume concentration Cve and the “Durand” heterogeneous volume portion concentration Cdu are divided from the slurry total volume concentration Cvt as follows: ⎛C ⎞ top ⎟ C =C ⎜ ve vt ⎜ C ⎟ ⎝ mid ⎠ (2) C = C −C du vt ve where C top C mid (3) determines the amount of the suspended particles contributed to the “vehicle”. The most important step in the use of the Wasp model is to determine which portion of the slurry is in the “vehicle” and which is in the “Durand” heterogeneous flow portion.4 in this paper). 1977.
