Overland flow treatment of wastewater : interim report by Charles A Carlson ( Book )
2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Land application has been suggested as an effective, low-cost method for advanced treatment of wastewater from military reservation treatment plants. This study is being conducted to determine the mechanisms involved in wastewater treatment by overland flow so that operational feasibility, design, and performance criteria can be more accurately evaluated. A model 5 ft wide and 20 ft long was prepared with grass sod and a low-permeable Susquehanna clay to a 6-in. depth at a 2% slope. Secondary effluent from a model treatment plant was supplemented with 13.4 mg/l of nitrogen as ammonium nitrate and 0.2 mg/l of cadmium, copper, lead, manganese, nickel, and zinc to simulate average wastewater. The study was conducted for 12 weeks with effluent applied by flooding from the upper end of the slope at 0.5 in./day (6-hr periods) for 4 days per week. The wastewater was generally distributed into 20, 30, and 50% for subflow, evapotranspiration, and runoff, respectively. Analyses showed that 100, 95, 91, and 75% of the ammonium, nitrate, and organic nitrogen and phosphorus, respectively, were retained in the model. The loss of 25% of the applied phosphorus in runoff indicated a need for more surface contact, probably obtainable by increasing the model length. The subflow analyses showed excellent removal of nitrogen, phosphorus, and most heavy metals indicating effective removal mechanisms by the soil during the study period

An evaluation of movable-bed tidal inlet models by Subhash C Jain ( Book )
1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of movable-bed tidal inlet hydraulic models in predicting prototype behavior, by comparing model predictions with the observations made in the prototype, and to examine the scaling requirements for such models. Seven model studies were conducted by WES during the period 1939 to 1969. Calibrations of five of these models, as measured by bed topography changes, are evaluated by means of quantitative indicators, including correlation coefficients and root-mean-square (rms) error. The values of correlation coefficients, disregarding measurement errors in model and prototype soundings, were generally low and those of rms error high. Evaluation of data from the Galveston Harbor entrance model revealed that the shoaling rates and distribution along the navigation channel predicted by the model are not in good agreement with the prototype data. It was concluded that the model reproduction of details of bed topography was less accurate than that which might have been obtained had the proposed similitude criteria been used, and had more complete prototype data been available for calibration. Disagreement between model and prototype is believed to have been due to: scale effects introduced by nonsimilarity ofthe physical processes; insufficient prototype data for calibration and verification; oversimplification of the available prototype data for use in the model study; and experimental errors
