Excess sludge handling is as important as treating the wastewater in determining the operational performance and costs in modern municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). In practice, excess sludge handling is widely implemented using anaerobic digestion (AD), in which the organic matter inside the sludge is not only stabilised and partly...

Accurate rheological characterisation of sewage waste activated sludge (WAS) is of high importance for downstream processing related to optimised sludge pumping and mixing, assessment of energy demands and overall process design. However, to elaborate rheological behaviour is often challenging under dynamic operational conditions in practice....

This study aimed to characterise the gas-liquid flow and mixing behaviour in a gas-mixed anaerobic digester by improving phase interaction modelling using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). A 2D axisymmetric model validated with experimental data was set up using an Eulerian-Eulerian method. Uncertainty factors, including bubble size, phase...

For a proper operational performance assessment of excess sewage sludge digesters in practice, a better understanding of waste activated sludge (WAS) rheological behaviour is important, especially regarding the low-shear and poor mixing zones in anaerobic digesters. The potential rheological instability of WAS with different total solids (TS)...

Sharp transitions between potentially different turbulent states are unexpected because one might think that they should be washed out by the prevailing intense fluctuations and short coherence lengths and times. Contrary to this expectation, we found a sequence of such transitions in turbulent rotating Rayleigh-Bénard convection as the rotation...
