Sediment Resuspension and Transport in Water Distribution Storage Tanks
Ho, C., R. Murray, J. Christian, E. Ching, J. Slavin, J. Ortega, AND L. Rossman. Sediment Resuspension and Transport in Water Distribution Storage Tanks. JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN WATER WORKS ASSOCIATION. American Water Works Association, Denver, CO, 108(6):., (2016).
This journal article addresses the question of how likely tank sediments are to be resuspended and to drain from the tank, potentially impacting human health. AUsing computational fluid dynamics software, and sediment models from the literature, a variety of normal tank operating conditions are assessed to evaluate the likelihood of tank sediment resuspension.
