Definition of Hindered settling:
settling at a reduced speed (relative to the settling velocity of a single particle) due to interactions with neighbouring particles (displaced water, collisions, group settling,...), usually expressed by an empirical correction as a function of the effective volumetric concentration.
This is the common definition for Hindered settling, other definitions can be discussed in the article
