The Use of Computational Fluid Dynamics to Select Outlet System Configuration in Biosand Filters

One Liner: 
Computer modelling shows that the current outlet configurations of the V10 and Hydraid BSFs could benefit from optimization.

AbstractThe biosand filter is considered the one of the most sustainable type of point-of-use (POU) water treatment technology. This work aimed, through computational fluid dynamics, simulate different configuration of inlet collection system. This paper presents a comparison of four different outlets for the filtrate water in Biosand Filter with the follow design, PEU/UEM, CAWST version 10 and HydrAid. Based on the results, we can conclude that the ring water outlet is the better choice between both design.
