The most comprehensive resource on slurries and slurry systems, covering everything from fluid mechanics to soil classification, pump design to selection criteria.

Slurries are mixtures of liquids and solid particles of all types. For instance, liquid is used as a way of transporting what you get out of the mine, which might be better than shoveling it into freight cars and carrying it out by train.

Slurry systems are fundamental to dredging, many mineral processes, bridge and tunnel construction, and to the manufacturer of synthetic petroleum products from oil sands.

BAHA ABULNAGA, P.E., obtained his Bachelor of Aeronautical Engineering in 1980 from the University of London and his Masters in Materials Engineering in 1986 from the American University in Cairo, Egypt. The first years of his professional career were devoted to the adaptation of air cushion platforms to desert environments, as well a...
