The IADC Young Author Award-winning paper verifies the agreement between the theoretical calculations for a new toothless draghead and the real situation when the draghead is being used.

Hydraulic Transport of Sand/Shell Mixtures in Relation with the Critical Velocity
Hydraulic Transport of Sand/Shell Mixtures in Relation with the Critical Velocity

When pumping shells through a pipeline, a much higher velocity is required to make them erode and go back into suspension, because although the settling velocity of shells is much lower than equivalent sand particles, the erosion velocity is much higher.
