- Experiments of the deposition of suspended particles in a rainwater pipeline were combined with mathematical model fitting to explore deposition regularity under variable transport flux. The simulation results showed that four primary factors affected deposition regularity in a rainwater pipeline. In particular, the deposition and flushing processes alternately dominated when the flow and initial suspended solids (SS) concentration changed simultaneously. The migration of the easy deposition position (EDP, the position with the largest deposition velocity) displayed an obvious regularity, shifting from front to back along the pipe regularly at increasing flow, and from back to front when flow decreased.
