Slurry is the combination of two elements, solid-liquid mixtures. Pipe flows of slurry are commonly used in many applications of engineering fields for example pharmaceutical, food, civil, oil and gas and many other industries. Concern arises when the rate of transporting slurry plays an important role for the operation execution, especially regarding efficiency of operation, time management and maintenance cost. Its vital contribution to all sectors makes researchers believe that by developing the accurate model (simulation) can lead to an efficient reference during designing phase. Perhaps it can gives better diameter selection of slurry pipe, pumps selection and better power consumption which can economically help investors and developers. Studies have proven that there are many factors that can influence slurry behavior in pipeline. These factors include fluid types, size of the particles, mixtures velocities, solid volume fraction, pressure loss across the pipe and etc. This project focuses to comprehend the effect of particle size and solid volume fraction on solid concentration profile, cuttings velocity, and frictional pressure loss in horizontal pipeline.
