The transport in pipe flow of a chemical species can be materially affected by the presence of solid suspension if the species is capable of partitioning into a solute phase and a solid phase sorbed onto the suspended particles. An asymptotic analysis is used in this work to deduce the effective transport equations for the two phases, with kinetic sorptive exchange taken into account. The effects of sorption on the advection and dispersion of a sorbing chemical are discussed and illustrated with a numerical example.
