In this paper we study the general characteristics of deposition of large particles (or aggregates) that result from the mutual aggregation of small and large fractions in bidisperse (or double fractional) suspension. We give equations of motion and change in mass of the large particle in the presence of inter-fractional coagulation process and effect of straitened sedimentation. In the limiting Stokes and Newton modes (relevant for small and large Reynolds numbers) we have movement formulas for speed of sedimentation and their analysis. Discuss some of the results of calculations obtained by numerical integration of the equations of motion of a large particle in suspension.
