Ice slurry is a solid-liquid phase fluid consisting of a liquid solution and ice particles. It is widely used in life and engineering because of its excellent cold-carrying capacity. In this paper, a genetic algorithm is used to optimize the ice slurry flow with the minimum pumping power as the objective function. The results show that the genetic algorithm can be effectively applied to the optimization of ice slurry flow characteristics within reasonable parameters. In addition, the transport
