The Science of Mixing and Maintaining Water Quality in Water Storage Tanks


This presentation discusses the science of hydraulic short-circuiting and mixing in storage tanks (reservoirs, standpipes and elevated tanks). Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models and 3D Laser- Induced Fluorescence (3DLIF) scale models are used to illustrate mixing and how it is impacted by tank style, inlet and outlet pipe configuration, inlet momentum, and temperature differences between source and tank water. Both passive and active mixing systems are discussed and several case studies are presented that use “before” and “after” sampling data to show improvements in water quality after the installation of a mixing system.
