18th International Conference
Transport & Sedimentation
of Solid Particles

September 11-15, 2017
Prague, Czech Republic
Preliminary Programme, Presenting author’s details, and Final Registration is now available

The international conferences on Transport and Sedimentation of Solid Particles have been initiated and further developed since 1971 by the Institute of Environmental Engineering (former Institute of Hydro - and Geoengineering) of Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences, Wroclaw, Poland.

For more than 45 years these Conferences have been a traditional place of meeting and active debates of scientists, engineers and leading authorities engaged in the field of pipeline transport and sedimentation of solid particles. The Conferences have supported an international exchange of research, developments and transfer of technology in these fields. Among the participants there are mechanical, civil and chemical engineers, physicists, hydromechanical, hydrotechnical and hydrology scientists, sanitary engineers and engineers dealing with problems of the natural environment.

Hydraulic transport of solid-liquid mixtures and multi-phase flows in closed and open conduits is used in many applications of the mining, energy, chemical, metallurgical and other industrial enterprises for the transportation of products or disposal of various wastes. and/or for the hydraulics disposal of various wastes. The setting of solid particles is also useful in many industrial applications, and sediment transport in channels and rivers has a direct impact on the natural environment and environmental protection. The Conference is expected to cover all the aspects of conveyance of solids by fluids, motion of solids and solid-fluid interaction in closed and open conduits.

Since the first conference in Poland in 1971, the series has travelled to Czech Republic, Belgium, Georgia, Germany, Russia and The Netherlands.


The 18th International Conference on Transport and Sedimentation of Solid Particles is organised on the occasion of 65th anniversary of the foundation of the Institute of Hydrodynamics CAS, v. v. i., by
