Analysis of Transient Laminar Flow in Swro with Hybrid Membrane Channels

  title={Analysis of Transient Laminar Flow in Swro with Hybrid Membrane Channels},
  author={C. Jia},
In spite that three-quarters of the Earth's surface is covered by water, the shortage of freshwater supply is posing a great threat to human survival. Therefore, seawater desalination has been considered a useful method to produce freshwater, and their use has increased significantly over the past two decades. This paper presented a mathematical model for the transient laminar flow in the seawater reverse-osmosis (SWRO) desalination with hybrid membrane channels. The flow simulations were made… CONTINUE READING
