Abstract

Making use of differential equations describing Darcian mechanics of two- phase systems, hydraulic conductivity and compressibility of a suspension are determined. Monotonous process in a suspension is defined which makes it possible to euse laboratory measurements of moving boundary separating the suspension from the overlying water. 1 Introduction According to its energetic efficiency, the gravity thickening is one of the most convenient processes of lowering the volume of suspensions and signif- icantly increasing the ceoncentration of their solid phase. Recently known theories enable us to solve the first part of the thickening process i.e. the zone of sedimentation (Handova and Sladka, 1988 and Konicek and Burdych, 1988). They also can be used when solving the problem of cross-section area of the thickening tan
