Flow / Load Balancing

Civil engineering structures are used to distribute the flow and solids load to multiple settling tanks or aeration lanes at a sewage treatment works.

Achieving a good fluid and solids distribution ensures equal loading on settlement tanks/aeration lanes and is fundamental to achieving optimal treatment performance.

MMI Engineering uses Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to assess the flow and solids distribution using appropriate multiphase models to resolve free surface effects, which influence fluid distribution and appropriate models for tracking the solids load.
