This Scientific and Technical Report (STR) provides in-depth fundamentals and guidelines regarding Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations of Water Resources Recovery Facilities (WRRFs) unit processes (e.g. headworks, aerobic and anaerobic biological reactors, settling tanks, disinfection).

Each unit process is described with respect to:

Literature review and process description

Relevant CFD concepts and modelling approach

Case studies

Future research needs

CFD Modelling for Wastewater Treatment Processes also opens the discussion on two fundamental topics: experimental validation of CFD simulations, and the complementarity between CFD and Chemical Reaction Engineering approaches. This book is intended for undergraduate and graduate students majoring in fields related to wastewater treatment and/or fluid mechanics, as well as researchers and engineers who conduct research and practices in modelling such unit processes. Water resource recovery modelling is not just about lab-scale processes. Now and in the future, it is about improving our understanding of (and designing better) full-scale facilities!
