Slurry Systems Handbook

Slurry Systems Handbook

Baha Abulnaga

400 pages, parution le 21/05/2002


The most comprehensive resource on slurries and slurry systems,covering everything from fluid mechanics to soil classification,pump design to selection criteria. Slurries are mixtures of liquids and solid particles of all types. For instance,liquid is used as a way of transporting what you get out of the mine,which might be better than shoveling it into freight cars and carrying it out by train. Slurry systems are fundamental to dredging,many mineral processes,bridge and tunnel construction,and to the manufacturer of synthetic petroleum products of from oil sands.


Here is expert,comprehensive coverage of slurries and slurry systems,covering everything from fluid mechanics and soil classification,to pipeline,plant and pump design and materials selection criteria for wear resistance.

This unique handbook is logically divided into two sections: the first covers the hydraulics of slurry flows and includes information on the principles of classifying soils,mixing with water,design of pipelines from coarse to very fine slurries,as Newtonian and Non-Newtonian flows. In a very innovative approach,the mathematics of flow of slurry in open channels,drop boxes and cascades is presented. The reader is guided through those complex flows by numerous solved problems in SI and USCS units. The second section is devoted to the equipment used to make and pump slurries,and contains data on rock crushing,milling,and grinding,separation,classification,filtering,and thickening. The author also delves into the specific aspects of the design of slurry pumps,the selection of materials for wear resistance. The book progresses with practicalexamples of operating slurry pipelines,appropriate codes and guidelines to conduct feasibility studies for slurry concentrate or tailings disposal systems.

Written by an expert with international experience,Slurry Systems Handbook also includes: * Appropriate reference standards from soil classification to pipeline construction
* Practical examples and more than 70 solved problems of design
* Programs of slurry hydraulics for the personal computer
* Comparison between different mathematical models for heterogeneous and homogeneous mixtures,Newtonian and Non-Newtonian flows
* Open channel slurry flow,drop boxes and cascades
* Advanced equations for further research
* Materials selection for abrasion and erosion-corrosion
* Detailed design of slurry pumps
* Slurry solutions to the siltation of large dams
* Feasibility study for hydrotransport This is truly a reference any slurry system engineer would want on their shelf—and at their fingertips.
