Abstract: The drag coefficient for dispersed particles settling in a fluid is related to the particle Reynolds number with the same function as that used for a single particle falling in a clear fluid, after taking into account the effects of concentration both on the effective density of particles and on the viscosity of fluid-sediment mixture. A new method is developed for evaluating the settling velocity of natural sediment particles dispersed in a fluid; it agrees well with the available experimental data. The differences among various empirical expressions are illustrated using the present relationship.
