Folashade Akinmolayan (Chemical Engineering): A detailed mathematical modelling representation of clean water treatment plants

One of the biggest operational risks to water companies arise from their ability to control the day to day management and optimisation of their water treatment systems; and with emerging pressures to remain competitive within the global market, companies are looking for solutions to be able to make predictions on how their chosen treatment processes can be improved. The processes used for potable water treatment plants can vary dependant on the source of water and water quality.
The main objective of this work is the consideration of a complete mathematical model of an entire water treatment plant, which enables a wider view on how changes in one processing unit will affect the treatment process as a whole. The performance of the process models are first verified individually and are then combined to enable the simulation of a complete water treatment work.
