The transport of solid-liquid mixtures through pipelines is an advanced area of research and is being carried out to achieve energy efficiency and hence reduce transport cost of the material to be transported. The transport cost of the material in two dimensional ducts is considered to be less than that in a pipeline because of a favourable concentration and velocity distributions within such ducts. In the present work, a methodology has been developed to design a two dimensional ducts for transporting solid-liquid mixtures.
