SETTLING VELOCITIES OF PARTICULATE SYSTEMS: 9. PHENOMENOLOGICAL THEORY OF SEDIMENTATION PROCESSES: NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF THE TRANSIENT BEHAVIOUR OF FLOCCULATED SUSPENSIONS IN AN IDEAL BATCH OR CONTINUOUS THICKENER
The transient behaviour of flocculated suspensions in an ideal thickener is simulated by numerical solution of the parabolic-hyperbolic equation of the phenomenological theory of sedimentation. The numerical results yield the expected sedimentation and consolidation behaviour for batch sedimentation and for the most important operations of continuous thickening: filling up, transition between steady states and emptying of a continuous thickener.
