Flow Distribution at Wastewater Treatment Plants – Real Problems and Proven Solutions
Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) has been applied at a number of wastewater treatment plants to indentify and quantify flow distribution problems and test potential solutions. The applications include long distribution channels feeding multiple parallel units such as primary and secondary clarifiers, short distribution channels receiving flows from different directions while feeding parallel treatment units such as Ultra Violet (UV) disinfection basins, and approaching channels distributing flows to UV basins. Physical modeling as well as field measurements were used to verify findings obtained from CFD analysis. CFD was then used to determine cost effective modifications.
