Abstract: The available experimental data for the horizontal settling velocities of suspensions with particles of small size have been collected. These have been compared with the velocities calculated from the several equations existing in the literature for predicting horizontal settling velocities. No consistent agreement between he experimental and calculated velocities has been found. Using the effective density ratio, defined as the ratio of the difference in density between solid and liquid to the density of the liquid, the experimental values have been correlated satisfactorily. Further data is needed before a generalised correlation for suspensions can be established.
