Abstract text:
For a certain sewerage system the designed operation parameters of the pumping station serving the wastewater treatment plant couldn’t be achieved. The problems reported by the personnel have leaded the Technical University of Civil Engineering, Bucharest, research team to multiple possible causes. One of this is related to the flow conditions ensured by the sewerage, a very complex hydraulic system, conceived and built long before the pump-treatment ensemble. The paper presents the mathematical modeling efforts made by the authors to answer to the questions regarding the water level influence on the malfunction of the pumping station. Based on the developed model which analyses the entire system as a whole, several conclusions were driven for improving the operation capacity of the pumping station.
Key Words:
hydraulic system; free surface flow; sewerage system.
