With the increase in population, the development of regional economy and the acceleration of industrialization, wastewater effluents are increasing, which puts forward higher requirements for effluent treatment and disposal capacity. In this case, the numerical simulation becomes a powerful tool. Although the numerical simulation technology has been significantly developed, the turbulence modeling problem of jet or plume has not been completely studied, and further research is needed.
This webinar will briefly introduce the application and configuration of outfalls, the basic principles of numerical simulation and various methods of turbulence modeling, In addition, the simulation case of OpenFOAM for sewage discharge modeling, and the improvement in the numerical model will be further discussed. The speakers hope that this webinar will provide the audience with information and constructive discussion.
