ZULUAGA, Laura C et al. CFD Simulation of an Anaerobic Membrane BioReactor (AnMBR) to Treat Industrial Wastewater. [online]. 2015, n.42, pp.23-29. ISSN 0121-4993.

A Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation has been developed for an Anaerobic Membrane BioReactor (AnMBR) to treat industrial wastewater. As the process consists of a side-stream MBR, two separate simulations were created: (i) reactor and (ii) membrane. Different cases were conducted for each one, so the surrounding temperature and the total suspended solids (TSS) concentration were checked. For the reactor, the most important aspects to consider were the dead zones and the mixing, whereas for the ceramic membrane, it was the shear stress over the membrane surface. Results show that the reactor's mixing process was adequate and that the membrane presented higher shear stress in the 'triangular' channel

Keywords : Anaerobic; CFD; heat transfer; MBR; TSS concentration.
