Abstract The efficiency of an in-line stormwater physic-chemical treatment system combining sand removal, flocculation-coagulation and subsequent settling has been assessed by simulation. Such a system is designed to both reduce the discharge of pollution during storm events in receiving water bodies and to avoid disturbances on the downstream wastewater treatment plant. The stormwater treatment model, based on an existing system, is combined to the Benchmark Simulation Model 2 wastewater… Expand


Application of coagulation process for the treatment of combined sewer overflows (CSOs)
Abstract Nonpoint source pollutions discharged with stormwater runoff during rainfall events degrade public waterbodies. Because combined sewer overflows (CSOs) especially affect public waterbodies,Expand
Treatment of urban runoff at Lake Tahoe: low-intensity chemical dosing.
Polyaluminum chlorides modified with silica or sulfate, with low to medium basicity, were consistently the best performers in these tests, in terms of simultaneously removing phosphorus and fine particles under a wide range of operating conditions with low doses. Expand
A dynamic model of the clarification-thickening process
Abstract A dynamic model of the clarification-thickening process is presented. Based on the solids flux concept and on a mass balance around each layer of a one-dimensional settler, this model canExpand
Optimization of Floc Characteristics for Treatment of Highly Turbid Water
Abstract This study addressed the size and fractal dimensions of flocs coagulated from highly turbid raw water using polyaluminum chloride (PACl) as the coagulant. Large flocs with loose interiorExpand
Anaerobic digestion model No. 1 (ADM1)
The IWA Task Group for Mathematical Modelling of Anaerobic Digestion Processes was created with the aim to produce a generic model and common platform for dynamic simulations of a variety ofExpand
Benchmark Simulation Model No 2: finalisation of plant layout and default control strategy.
The finalised plant layout is summarised and, as was done for BSM1, a default control strategy is proposed and a demonstration of how BSM2 can be used to evaluate control strategies is also given. Expand
