Internal hydraulics of baffled disinfection contact tanks using computational fluid dynamics
MetadataShow full item record
The present study focuses on understanding the internal hydraulics of baffled disinfection contact tanks for small drinking water systems using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The emphasis of this study is to improve the hydraulic efficiency of disinfection contact tanks. In particular, the answer to the following key question was sought: for a given footprint of a contact tank, how does the hydraulic efficiency of the tank depend on the number and geometry of internal baffles? In an effort to address this question, high resolution two-dimensional (planar) simulations were performed to ...
