Abstract

Purpose. Development of CFD model to evaluate the efficiency of wastewater treatment in a horizontal settler. The CFD model can be used to calculate flow hydrodynamics and mass transfer in settlers with complex geometric shape in the area of wastewater flow. Methodology. For numerical simulation of the process of wastewater movement in a horizontal settler, two mathematical models are used. The first model is based on the motion equations of a viscous incompressible fluid – the Navier-Stokes equations. The Navier-Stokes equations are written in the variables «vorticity - flow function». A two-dimensional mass transfer equation is used to calculate the concentration of a pollutant in a horizontal settler. To numerically integrate the two-dimensional mass transfer equation, a finite-difference splitting scheme is used. The splitting of the modeling equation of mass transfer is carried out so that at each fractional step to determine the unknown value of the pollutant concentration by an explicit formula. For numerical integration of the vortex transfer equation and the equation for the flow function (the Navier-Stokes system of equations), finite-difference splitting schemes are used. Findings. Based on the developed CFD model, a complex of computer programs has been developed, which makes it possible to determine the efficiency of water treatment in a horizontal settler with additional elements. The results of a computational experiment to assess the efficiency of water treatment in a horizontal settler with additional elements in the form of plates are presented. Originality. An efficient CFD model has been created, which allows to quickly evaluate the efficiency of wastewater treatment in a horizontal settler with additional elements. The developed CFD model takes into account the geometric shape of the facility and the most significant physical factors, that influence the efficiency of the waste water treatment in horizontal settler: non-uniform flow velocity, diffusion, different position of inlet and outlet openings. Practical value. The developed CFD model belongs to the class of «diagnostic models» and can be used to assess the efficiency of treatment facilities at the stage of their preliminary design.
