Occasionally the research is focussed on hydraulic transport in relation to the modeling for simulators.

The publications focus on the physical processes of slurry transport and the dynamical behavior of a pump/pipeline system.

    13 - PARTICLE TRAJECTORIES NEAR IMPELLER BLADES IN CENTRIFUGAL (2804)

Centrifugal pumps, as used in the dredging industry, are used to transport mixtures of particles and water. To gain

insight into the processes that take place inside the pump, several studies are underway. In this paper, results of

theoretical and experimental studies of the interaction of particles and the boundary layers inside the pump impeller

are presented. Calculations predict that particle trajectories can be modified at low angles of attack, at higher angles

particles will impact the blade. In certain cases particles are caught in the boundary layer. Experimental data show

that bouncing impacts occur on the pressure side of the impeller, on the suction side some particles are trapped in the

boundary layer.
