Table 1 Coefficients of Equation 2

From: Experimental investigation of erosion-corrosion phenomena in a steel fitting due to plain and slurry seawater flow

Flow regime a 1 a 2
Uncontaminated seawater (laminar) 0.550 −1.735
Uncontaminated seawater (turbulent) 0.420 −0.735
Contaminated seawater (laminar) 0.009 Cs2 − 0.137 Cs +0.586 −0.078 Cs2 + 1.190 Cs − 2.085
Contaminated seawater (turbulent) −0.011 Cs2 + 0.114 Cs +0.759 0.123 Cs2 − 1.155 Cs − 2.779
  1. Cs is the sand concentration in grams per litre.
