A theoretical approach to calculating the deposition velocity is proposed. It is based on the hypothesis that the turbulent energy is partially spent on suspending the solids against gravity and on solids-liquid viscous friction. Only two constants of the theoretical equation are identified from the experimental data. The calculated results are compared to both the experimental data and the results obtained by other correlations. The accuracy of the results obtained by the derived correlation is sufficient for engineering applications.
