Properties slurry/slush

  1. Sep 21, 2009 #1
    Hi - I'm trying to set up a small calculation comparing running glycol/water vs ice slurry, water/ice ratio not known yet but initially why not 60/40, in a closed loop.

    However, a quick search on google does not clarify much on the properties of an ice/water slurry, as far as I can tell, the 'rheology' of said matter is not that well understood.

    Are there such a thing as approximated numbers for Cp, viscosity etc. for a ice-water slurry?

    A colleague of mine suggested using slurry in a cooling loop, instead of glycol-water, and I'm just trying to run the initial numbers - don't come down on me too hard :)

    Thanks in advance
