Mathematical modelling of the Astrasand sand filtration process

Mathematical modelling of the Astrasand sand filtration process


The aim of the project is to build and calibrate a process model based on measurements that were performed on the Nether Stowey Astrasand pilot plant in the UK. The calibrated model should be able to describe the removal of NH4 and TSS, with the focus on the former. Finally, the calibrated model is used to perform a sensitivity analysis in which the sensitivity of the nitrification process towards some operating parameters is investigated.
