Masters Theses

A transient one-dimensional mathematical model for simulating the transport of pollutant effluents from industrial plants is presented.

The Eulerion fluid-in-discrete-element (FLIDE) formulation employs the integral forms of the conservation principles of water mass, sediment mass, and pollutant mass in variable size discrete elements that span the flow region. The transport of the pollutant effluents are modeled as dissolved and adsorbed suspended sediment in the suspended sediment and slurry sediment layer and as dissolved and stationary resident sediment in the resident sediment layer.

The contributions of vertical variations of the velocity components and pollutant concentrations in the suspended sediment and slurry ...
