Modeling Treatment Plants to Improve Performance
SWRCB Wastewater: 0.1 CEU
CWEA: 1 Contact Hour
Practice Area: Engineering & Research, Laboratory, Operations & Maintenance
Optimization of primary sedimentation basins has become a key element for improving performance, increasing capacity, and reducing O&M costs in the activated sludge process. This session will provide participants with a framework for analyzing primary sedimentation through a combination of influent solids characterization and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling.
