A model of sedimentation-consolidation processes in so-called clarifier-thickener units is given by a parabolic equation describing the evolution of the local solids concentration coupled with a version of the Stokes system for an incompressible fluid describing the motion of the mixture. In cylindrical coordinates, and if an axially symmetric solution is(More)
Continuously operated clarifier-thickener units can be modeled by a non-linear, scalar conservation law with a flux that involves two parameters that depend discontinuously on the space variable. This paper presents two numerical schemes for the solution of this equation that have formal second-order accuracy in both the time and space variable. One of the(More)
