Abstract: This paper explores how to have a numerical simulation for the slurry transportation process by use of CFD. Euler's method and Lagrange method are applied respectively to calculate pipeline pressure distribution and loss. After the simulation of slurry settling process in pipes, its numerical results get verified in the tests. The results demonstrate that Euler model simulation comes closest to actual working conditions in the case of high-concentration slurry as the transmission medium, while Lagrange model comes closest to actual working conditions in the case of coarse particles or sandy soil.


Keywords: Slurry flow, CFX, Simulation, Eular model, Lagrange model.
