Terminal vs Settling vs Deposition Velocities
 
Hello folks,

this is for sure a obvious, and probably redundant :p, question but I've browsing through slurry papers and books, and I've come across the following terminology:

Settling Velocity, Terminal Velocity and Deposition Velocity!

For what I'm understanding this is just a question of choice of terminology by the authors, or am I mistaken?:confused::confused:
Do they represent different physical quantities?

Thank you for your input.

Best Regards,

Rui
