Chlorine Decay Modelling to Predict Disinfectant and Disinfectant by-Products (DBPs) Formation in Water Distribution System
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this research project is to understand chlorine decay and formation of disinfectant by-products (DBPs) using existing popular chlorine decay models. Performance of various chlorine decay models for different waters was investigated. Defining main performance criteria, popular models were modified to produce more reliable predictions. Nominated chlorine decay models were compared against defined criteria. Best chlorine decay model was endorsed. Finally, chlorine decay and formation of DBPs in a water distribution system was modelled as a case study.

Evaluation of second order and parallel second order approaches to model temperature variation in chlorine decay modellingJabari Kohpaei, Ahmad; Sathasivan, Arumugam; Aboutalebi, Hanieh (2011)All drinking water receives some form of disinfection and a minimum residual should remain at the customer’s tap. Most popular disinfectant of all is chlorine. Chlorine reacts with compounds in water and hence leads to ...
