Energy losses in the solid-water mixture flow where the density of solid is nearly equal to that of fluid were observed in horizontal pipelines. The observation was carried out to investigate the influence that the specific gravity of the solid particles exerted on the energy loss. A relative friction factor based on the friction factor of the pure water flow becomes larger as the solid concentration increases in the mixture flow of solid particles with the specific gravity 0.86 and 1.04. The relative friction factor is given with the Froude number, the solid concentration and the specific gravity of solid.
