A computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model is used to assess the effect of influent 
temperature variation on solids settling in a sedimentation tank for potable water treatment. 
The model is based on the CFD code Fluent and exploits several specific aspects of the ...

Modeling local flotation frequency in a turbulent flow field

M Kostoglou, TD Karapantsios, KA Matis - Advances in colloid and interface …, 2006 - Elsevier
Despite the significance of turbulent fluid motion for enhancing the flotation rate in several 
industrial processes, there is no unified approach to the modeling of the flotation rate in a 
turbulent flow field. Appropriate modeling of the local flotation (bubble–particle attachment ...
