%X Theoretical, steady state, incompressible, one-dimensional analysis has been done for the head loss in an
inclined pipeline conveying a suspension of liquid and particles. Values of head loss for a high concentration
copper tailings slurry have been obtained from an ad hoc experimental rig (concentration up to
42%Cv (solids by volume), adverse (positive slope) of 8%). Measured data permits the calculation of the ratio
Z, defined as the head loss of mixture for a θ angle /head loss of mixture for θ = 0. This ratio yields a value
of 1.11 with a standard deviation σZ = 0.04.
