    Abstract

    The modeling requirements of dilute, swirling gas-solid suspensions in horizontal pipe flow are studied. It is found that four dimensionless parameters are needed for modeling these suspensions if electro-static effects are negligible. The theory is tested experimentally in a model and in a prototype. The swirl is generated in a rotating section of the pipe. Measurements of air velocity, particle mass flow and particle phase density are presented. The extent of agreement between theory and experiment and the relative importance of each dimensionless parameter are discussed.
