Water Treatment Basin

Application ID: 14049

This app demonstrates the following:

  • Parameterized geometry containing a geometry sequence with if-statements to produce different types of designs
  • Options to set the mesh size
  • A graphical user interface that includes different windows that can be shown or hidden
  • Light Theme

Water treatment basins are used in industrial-scale processes in order to remove bacteria or other contaminants.

The app exemplifies modeling turbulent flow and material balances subject to chemical reactions. You can specify the dimensions and orientation of the basin, mixing baffles, and inlet and outlet channels. You can also set the inlet velocity, species concentration, and reaction rate constant in the first-order reaction.

The app solves for the turbulent flow through the basin and presents the resulting flow and concentration fields as well as the space-time, half-life, and pressure drop.

This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
