- Sequencing batch reactor (SBR) as optimal method for production of granular activated sludge (GAS)--fluid dynamic investigationsB E Zima
Lehrstuhl für Strömungsmechanik, Friedrich Alexander Universitat Erlangen Nurnberg, Cauerstrasse 4, 91058 Erlangen, Germany
Water Sci Technol 55:151-8. 2007..Obtained results show a characteristic flow pattern in a SBR. It is pointed out that additional effects like particle-wall collisions, inter particle collisions, erosion can also affect significantly granules formation...
- Synergetic microorganismic convection generated by Opercularia asymmetrica ciliates living in a colony as effective fluid transport on the micro-scaleBogumila E Zima-Kulisiewicz
Institute of Fluid Mechanics, Technical Faculty, Friedrich Alexander University, Erlangen Nuremberg, Cauerstrasse 4, D 91058 Erlangen, Germany
J Biomech 42:2255-62. 2009..Additionally, analysis of the shear and normal strain rates provided information on mixing phenomena within the fluid on the micro-scale. The influence of seeding substance concentration on the flow pattern was also studied...
