Development & Application of an Automated CFD Tool for Modelling Wastewater Clarifiers
Abstract:A new method based on computational fluid dynamics has been developed to analyse and design wastewater clarifiers. This has been validated and the technique applied to over 46 wastewater treatment works in the UK with significant cost savings and risk reductions at many sites. The new method has been largely automated and developed as a web-based application for ease of access. The paper describes the detail of the CFD model and its implementation with standard mass flux theory in an automated software clarifier design tool. A case study of a recent clarifier new design and retrofit project is also described.
