> Summary with 6 pipe diameters


    A summary is given of some graphs for pipe diameters of 1 inch, 2 inch, 4 inch, 8 inch, 0.4 m and 0.8 m. These graphs are:

The Relative Excess Hydraulic Gradient for constant spatial volumetric concentration curves of 17.5% for uniform sands and gravels.

The Relative Excess Hydraulic Gradient for constant transport volumetric concentration curves of 17.5% for uniform sands and gravels.
 The Limit Deposit Velocity for uniform sands and gravels.
 The Durand Froude number for the limit deposit velocity for uniform sands and gravels.

The Bed Height and Slip Factor for uniform sands and gravels.

The Relative Excess Hydraulic Gradient for both constant spatial (A) and transport (B) volumetric concentration curves of 17.5% for graded sands and gravels for a 1 mm particle d_{50}.

The Bed Height and Slip Factor for graded sands and gravels for a 1 mm particle d_{50}.

A comparison of 12 models based on the transition velocity between the heterogeneous and the homogeneous regime.

A comparison of 22 models based on the Relative Excess Hydraulic Gradient.

A comparison of Heterogeneous models based on the Relative Excess Hydraulic Gradient.
