Abstract
    Several equations for calculating terminal velocity of sediment particles are presented. Each formula is then used to determine friction loss in slurry pipelines. The study evaluates the effect of each equation on the value of friction loss. Results are presented first as a function of slurry velocity, and then as a function of particle diameter. They are later compared with experimental data available in literature. It is found that there is a considerable difference between friction loss values yielded by those terminal velocity equations. This paper also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of applying these equations for friction loss calculation.
