Intensification of flotation treatment by exposure to vibration

by IWA Publishing  (Apr. 10, 2014)

In this paper, an intensification of wastewater flotation treatment by exposure to vibration is studied. Exposure to vibration results in the decrease of air bubble size, increase of air flow through the aerator and more even dispersion of air bubbles in water. This intensifies the aeration process, thus significantly improving the treatment ...

Free-surface flow simulations for discharge-based operation of hydraulic structure gates

by IWA Publishing  (Jan. 21, 2014)

We combine non-hydrostatic flow simulations of the free surface with a discharge model based on elementary gate flow equations for decision support in the operation of hydraulic structure gates. A water level-based gate control used in most of today's general practice does not take into account the fact that gate operation scenarios ...
