Vortex pipe flow of suspensions with laminar motion in the fluid phase is treated. The pipe consists of two smoothly joined sections, one stationary and the other rotating with a constant angular velocity. The flow properties of the fluid phase are determined by solving the complete Navier-Stokes equations numerically. The governing parameters are the flow Reynolds number and swirl ratio. Subsequent numerical solution to the momentum equations governing the particulate phase provides for both particle velocity and concentration distributions.
