Comparative Coal Transportation Costs: An Economic and Engineering Analysis of Truck, Belt, Rail, Barge and Coal Slurry and Pneumatic Pipelines; Volume 7--Pneumatic Transport.
NTIS: PB 274 385 Available for Reference At Bureau Libraries :78 pages
Based on past and current studies, a theoretical analysis of a coal carrying pneumatic pipeline is presented including friction factors, minimum transport velocity, and pipeline telescoping. A 3.5-Mile, 200-tph, pilot facility is designed. Cost analyses are presented. These and the design are extrapolated to a 100-mile line, smaller coal sizes, and greater throughput.
